The Mills County GIS
Coordinator is a joint position shared between Mills and Montgomery county.
A geographic information
system (GIS) captures, stores, analyzes, manages, and presents data that is
linked to location. This allows us to view, interpret, and visualize data in
many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends between the data.
Because viewing data in a visual way is very intuitive for humans a GIS helps us
to answer questions and solve problems by looking at data in a way that can be
quickly understood and easily shared.
What is a GIS used for?
Mills County uses GIS to accomplish such things as property assessment,
identifying parcel boundaries, right-of-ways, analyzing property and parcel
information, and it's used in roadside sign management. Other implementations
of GIS in Mills County include such things as law enforcement planning,
emergency planning and impact analysis, planning and analysis of county roads
projects, and conservation planning and analysis.
