2014 Summer Conference Session – Clean Up That Mess Using GIS: Emerging Trends for Geographic Information System Technology


Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has rapidly become a standard and vital tool for county governments. While GIS technology was originally focused on land use planning, the technology now helps counties address such policy challenges as traffic control, water and sewer, public safety, waste management, and a variety of other services. Panelists will discuss updates and emerging trends in GIS technology and highlight the many diverse areas where GIS can assist county governments.
