What is GIS?

Local governments use GIS (Geographic Information System) to identify and analyze data graphically. GIS displays information about parcels and property lines, building structures, neighborhoods, roads, addresses, zoning, resource protection areas, trails, and parks, just to name a few. This mapping information can be queried, displayed, spatially analyzed, edited/overlaid, and linked to other databases for the purposes of citizen response, planning, preservation, and public safety initiatives. GIS is an essential tool used daily by many City departments.

FredGIS offers citizens a fast and easy way to access City land information at anytime. Visitors to the site can search property information, view it in relation to neighborhoods, parks or other items of interest, map trails they may wish to explore, gather zoning and ward information, and see how the city has changed over the years. Patterns of development in the city can be viewed by looking at aerial imagery and building structures, or comparing aerial imagery from two different time frames.

Users can turn on and off layers of mapping data to quickly view electronic information. A "Markup" tool is also available which allows the user to draw on top of a map view. The altered map view is then available for export or printing. The system was designed to be easy to use and most information is accessible with the click of a mouse.
