Cross agency applications appear seamless when data is merged into a GIS. See the many new avenues for using this increasingly important technology.

GIS is used at the state to:

Issue permits
Plan transportation projects
Share information with the public
Study flooding
Prepare for and respond to emergencies
Understand environmental issues
Study water quality
Track health issues
Inventory assets
Understand public needs
Plan new programs
Promote economic development
