Welcome to the City of Southfield’s Geographic Information System (GIS)
Geographic Information Systems combine layers of information concerning a particular area to give people a better understanding of that area. Different layers of information can be combined and filtered to provide different perspectives and unique views of information, data and analysis.
GIS technology integrates common database operations such as “query” and statistical analysis with the unique visualization and geographic analysis benefits presented by visual maps. These abilities make it valuable to a wide range of public and private enterprises for explaining events, predicting outcomes, and planning strategies.
The City of Southfield GIS Mission Statement
