A geographic information system, or GIS, is a computerized data management system used to capture, store, manage, retrieve, analyze, and display spatial information. GIS allows users to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways. A primary goal of the Commission's GIS program is to leverage technology to make data about the lands and resources under the Commission's jurisdiction more accessible to the public.
