Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) help planners better understand the context for their planning decisions. GIS does this by integrating and visualing data about our region, our population, our environment. Using GIS, a planner can take raw data and transform it into the information required to make an informed planning decision. This information can then be communicated with other stakeholders and the community at large.

OneSTL is a regional effort to help guide development for our region for decades to come. The map below is an example of both the capabilities of GIS and a visualization of the regional study area.
