More on GIS Day

by @ 9:35 am. Filed under Technology

I found last week’s Mass GIS Day very enjoying (GIS states for Geograpic Information System). Over thirty agencies attended the event sponsored by MassGIS. Each vendor demonstrated their unique use for the state’s mapping system. The wide range of uses employed by these agencies truly amazed me. State and local agencies use GIS in Crime Prevention, Economic development, Election results, Climate analysis, Education, Property Assessing etc. I spoke with a number of people at the event, but two conversations stand out in my mind…One was with a representative from the town of Concord, MA. He explained that his department overlays plans from the registry of deeds onto the town’s assessor maps. When you click on the assessor parcel an image of the registry plan is displayed. I loved it. I also talked to someone from the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission. They use GIS to attract businesses to “the Valley”. They have plotted every commercial parcel in their area. Zoning information, land characteristics, building size and construction traits are available with the click of a mouse. If a business in Texas is looking to relocate to the Merrimcak Valley they can virtual shop online. I congratulate the people from Mass GIS for a well run informative event.
