Welcome to the GIS Division

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an integrated collection of computer software and data used to view and manage information about geographic places, analyze spatial relationships, and model spatial processes. A GIS provides a framework of gathering, organizing, and sharing spatial data and related information in order to allow others to make better, more informed spatial decisions.

The goal of the GIS Division is to deliver accurate and up to date geographic information for the City of Visalia’s staff and its citizens.  We enthusiastically offer and promote GIS as a method to efficiently address complex spatially related issues and help support better decision making processes through the use of geospatial technologies.

GIS technology allows users to investigate and question the relationships created by linking databases to locations or places.  The results can then be displayed in the form of a map, graph or a tabular report. This computer driven system helps the City analyze and manage vast amounts of geographically oriented data obtained both internally, and from county, state and federal agencies.  The power and flexibility of GIS can now be widely used to support problem solving in both the private and public sectors.
