The mission of the Geographic Information System (GIS) Division is to provide the City of Vero Beach staff, the public, and other agencies data that contains accurate geographic location and associated information for material assets or activities located in the City of Vero Beach. The GIS Division maintains communication between City departments and other agencies to ensure data quality and avoid redundancy. New technologies that may assist or improve data collection and distribution capabilities are evaluated as needed. Examples of data include: storm water drainage network, water/sewer network, streets, buildings, street signs, zoning, vehicle accidents, sidewalk inspections, and cemetery lots.
The GIS Division creates and/or manages location data for a diversity of real-world features. Detailed information associated with each feature are also stored with the location data. Using specialized software, the GIS Division is able to overlay location data, perform analysis, and create custom maps in a variety of themes and colors. These maps provide a superior method to interpret and understand data stored in a standard spreadsheet database.
The vast amount of location data available can make finding the answers to everyday questions a challenging task for City staff. The GIS Division solves this problem by creating interactive maps which are available for viewing via a computer on the City network. The interactive maps allow all City staff to quickly view and share location data between departments and the public. The maps are updated regularly and include aerial and land elevation views.
