Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth's surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map, such as streets, buildings, and townships.
Other counties utilize the technology available as well, and there are GIS maps used around the State of Illinois. The service is extremely helpful for not only individuals wanting to see the geographic area they reside in, but it aides businesses all over the state.
