Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, has become part of the planners’ lexicon. It provides a platform to analyze and display data and information spatially. A broad range of data elements are used by planners: land use and natural features, roadway networks and their attributes, transit networks and their attributes, crash records, forecasts from travel demand models, and more.
The GIS Working Group is a professional network for planners and technicians in MPOs and New York State DOT who create and use GIS based information.
