Desktop GIS

The GIS data capture process enables municipalities to capture their infrastructure in a pre-defined data structure.  We recommend QGIS desktop software, a free open-source GIS program.  However, ArcGIS can be used as an alternative. 

This component will:

  1. Build an inventory for each infrastructure group (Water, Sewer, Storm, Roads, etc.)
  2. Produce hard-copy maps
  3. Provide the municipality with a functional GIS for viewing its infrastructure on a desktop computer.
