Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, andElizabethton, TN Map interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.

The City of Elizabethton Engineering Department has been appointed the duty of developing a citywide GIS database for the water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer.  The Engineering Department is currently developing a database, collecting data and creating standards that will help streamline the way City employees collect, enter, and produce data in the future.  The Engineering Department will provide analysis and support to all departments within the City of Elizabethton and begin to incorporate GIS into everyday departmental operations.  

One goal of incorporating GIS into departmental work flows is to help departments operate more efficiently in their daily data evaluations and record keeping.  Another goal is to provide and maintain a comprehensive inventory of system components and assets including relevant attributes and characteristics.  These goals are consistent with the City's overall goal to use GIS and modeling tools to provide real-time, visual information for planning and scheduling system maintenance and improvements.
