A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system that ties data and information to specific geographic locations.


GIS data is maintained by the State of Colorado and Montrose County as a valuable administrative resource for maintaining and developing public infrastructure, planning for future growth and preserving a variety of geographically referenced information.


For the public, GIS is a door to information as basic as the location of streets to detailed information like parcel data and subdivision plats. By becoming familiar with some basic GIS tools, users can access information that meets their specific needs.
