GIS and Maps
GIS Mission Statement
Geographic Information System (GIS) enables the City of Alexandria to improve communication and decision-making to ultimately better serve the public through the efficient use of Geographic Information. GIS centrally manages, shares and analyzes information about locations through specialized mapping technology. This information increases transparency, improves many city technology applications and provides critical data to decision makers and the public.
