Geographic Information Systems


The primary goal of the City of Mesquite GIS Division is to develop a Citywide GIS structured for the analysis and display of the City's GIS data. A Citywide GIS incorporates data developed from individual city departments and distributes this data throughout the organization in a user-friendly internet-based environment. The benefits of a citywide GIS system are to bring together a wide-ranging network of people, buildings, systems and services that will expand the ability to retrieve, store and access geographically based data. Likewise, it will improve the quality, accuracy and timeliness of the data itself in an efficient, cost saving fashion. It is the specific goal of the City of Mesquite's Citywide GIS system to fully realize the potential of geographic information technology and make this knowledge available to all city entities.
