OVERVIEW OF GIS TECHNOLOGY

A geographic information system (GIS) is a technology that is used to view and analyze data from a geographic perspective. GIS is a computer-based data collection, storage, and analysis tool that combines information into easily understood maps. The development of an enterprise GIS enables us to view the spatial aspects of an immense quantity of information by way of querying a database and displaying the results on a map.

 

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been collaborating with various agencies within Newark to develop an enterprise GIS capable of serving the many information needs of the City and its residents. NEWGIN, the Newark Geographic Information Network, brings this cutting edge GIS technology to the City of Newark. The OMB citywide implementation of GIS combines technology, resources, and information on a common platform to meet all of Newark's spatial information needs.
