What is GIS?
Maps are powerful communication tools people use to locate streets, addresses and destinations. The Town uses maps to represent and analyze what is happening in our community and to plan for the future. A combination of computer software, people and data sets form the Town's Geographic Information System. The Division of Innovation and Technology uses GIS to create maps of Castle Rock and to answer more complex questions such as: How steep is the slope in this area? How dense is the housing in Plum Creek? What areas are Preble's mouse habitats?
