|City Hall > GIS & Maps|
Welcome to the City of Durango's GIS site. A Geographic Information System (GIS) incorporates spatial information, along with tabular data. This allows for the creation of visual maps and reports that show both the map and the associated data. GIS is intended to simplify the ability to view, analyze, manage, and distribute information. Since many decisions about the environment, planning, safety, land use, general planning, and population relate geographically, many agencies have had a long interest in the development and implementation of GIS.
The City's GIS program is centered in the Information Systems Division of the Finance Department. Our key goals are to maintain and provide high-quality spatial data to City Departments and the public, offer mapping services to citizens through our on-line mapping applications, and provide data to venders for citywide projects.
The City of Durango uses GIS software to distribute and create data. For example, parcels, streets, and fire hydrant locations. GIS is used to combine these data layers with database information to create intelligent maps.
This site is designed to allow the user to explore maps and information about the City of Durango. Users will be able to locate information regarding parcels, zoning, streets, property profiles, crime statistics, fire station locations, city hall, schools, and parks.
Data found throughout this site will be updated frequently. See the GIS Data Dictionary section of this site for more information pertaining to current data sets. This is an old Data Dictionary, We hope to be updating it in the furture
