About the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Division
The GIS Division was created in May, 2004 to improve geographic information access throughout the city. A GIS needs assessment was recently completed to determine specific information needs of the various City Departments. The City will utilize GIS capabilities to implement best management practices for assets and to improve data access throughout the city.
The GIS Division supports the creation, management, analysis, integration, display, and dissemination of geographic data for the City of Folsom. The GIS Division services include map production, spatial analysis, report generation, and information management support.
The GIS Division will provide accurate map-related information to the City as a means of encouraging data sharing, reducing data redundancy, and maximizing the value of the City's existing information systems.
