are in the process of converting to GIS. This conversion will greatly
improve the way we do business at the Assessors Office and make accessing
our information simpler for the end user.
McLean County Regional GIS Consortium is a cooperative effort of a number
of local government agencies with the common goal of providing better
information with less duplication of effort. Through cooperative
resource management McGIS is developing
a county-wide Geographic
Information System to better serve the public and to aid in many
local government decision making processes.
Geographic Information System is a collection of data that can be analyzed
and displayed in a variety of ways. The data is a combination of spatial
data, grouped in layers, and conventional databases. This data is linked on
common attributes and the results can be displayed on a map.
