2 Web-Based Planning Tools for Missouri, February 1, Objectives Understand the basic concepts of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Internet mapping Become familiar with the resources available in the CARES Map Room Learn about web mapping applications beyond basic interactive mapping

3 Web-Based Planning Tools for Missouri, February 1, GIS and Internet Mapping A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer- based system for capture, storage, retrieval, analysis and display of spatial (locationally-defined) data." (The National Science Foundation) Internet Mapping is a web-based application allowing access to GIS data and tools using a web browser. GIS data are – Organized into layers, or groupings of data of a common type (i.e. soils, roads, fire hydrants). – Typically include spatial (map) and tabular (text) data – Spatially referenced, allowing maps to overlay – Often require GIS-based software
