A Geographic Information System (or, “GIS” for short), is a technology that connects people with data, and allows for gathering, managing, analyzing, and sharing data. Here at the City of Sheboygan, we’ve invested in this technology to take a step towards becoming a smart city and empowering our employees, citizens, and others with the information they need to see. This investment helps the Department of Public Works identify problems, monitor change, accurately manage infrastructure and assets, and streamline tasks, workflows, and projects more efficiently. GIS supports the Department of Public Work’s efforts to be transparent, fiscally responsible, and provide information that helps us and the members of our community to make better decisions about how we manage and interact with our community.
Is there a pothole that you would like to see fixed? Or a city tree that needs to be trimmed?
