GIS or Geographic Information Systems is mapping technology that uses computers to collect, store, manipulate, analyze and display data.
GIS in Ipswich is an evolving technology that has become an important component of many projects. The Utilities and Public Works departments have taken an active role in the development of GIS for Ipswich, working with consultants to update the water, sewer and drainage systems.
As the GIS technology grows the Town of Ipswich can better provide its employees with tools to serve citizens with accurate location information and services. Several other departments such as Planning, Conservation, Open Space, and Police are also using GIS for project development and as an aid in responding to citizens requests.
The Information Technology Department oversees the maintenance for the town's GIS databases, online mapping solution, and client applications.
