Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

What is GIS?
Geographic Information System (GIS) is an integrated collection of computer software and data used to view and manage information about geographic locations, analyze spatial relationships, and model spatial processes. The GIS provides a framework for gathering and organizing spatial data and related information, displayed in cartographic static and interactive maps.
The GIS division is responsible for the design and maintenance of the City's GIS which is used to generate the various geospatial datasets such as parcels, roads, zoning, and district boundaries just to name a few. Additionally, we create custom applications which are used to distribute GIS data to the departments. Under strong leadership and technical resources, the GIS Division provides several key services on behalf of the program. When performed centrally, these services eliminate duplication of effort and promote the development of department-specific systems.
Our mission is to implement an integrated and cooperative GIS program among the Departments within the City of Temple.
The Interactive Maps are provided for informational purposes only and may not have been prepared for or be suitable for legal, engineering, or surveying purposes. They do not represent an on-the-ground survey and represent only the approximate relative location of property boundaries and other features.
The maps are in a constant state of maintenance, correction and update, using information from a variety of sources. The City of Temple does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the maps or the associated data. Map users are responsible for using the information appropriately within the limitations of geospatial data in general and these data in particular. The City makes no warranties, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
