What is a GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) is an information system typically used in large organizations and government. A GIS stores information pertaining to the geographic location of various features, such as parcels, as well as attribute information of the features, such as a parcel's owner, acreage, etc. A GIS is a valuable tool for storing, analyzing, displaying, maintaining and summarizing information on all geographic and most non-geographic information.
At the Kenai Peninsula Borough
We create, edit, and manage data necessary for the operation of all Borough departments. The GIS is used daily to support the decision-making processes of our local government, as well as by the Borough's Emergency Response system. We also provide data to various private, native, state and federal entities. We store and maintain air photography dating back to 1967, and satellite imagery as recent as 2010. Frequently, data is provided to the public in digital and hardcopy map format.
