GIS map

Geographic information system

A geographic information system aggregates data and allows them to be mapped while associating descriptive information with it.

Defined as the “geographic information sciences”, GIS is a system designed to collect, store, process and analyze geo-referenced geographical data, that is to say that each entity is referenced according to its geographical coordinates. It is a system which makes it possible to elaborate maps and to produce a Database organized in the form of “layers”, which allows it to superimpose information. Each geographical entity is made up of attributes, characteristics and information.

Created in 2007, the GIS service offers its member municipalities and services access to a web cartographic portal. This tool allows them to view maps and consult data on many areas such as land organization, network management, town planning, the environment, risks, etc.

The development of the community GIS aims to meet the operational and daily needs of the services, to be a support for land and housing observatories and thus to provide assistance in decision-making while facilitating the sharing of knowledge of the territory.
