How does Madison benefit from the GIS data?
Businesses and governments alike are plagued by having too much information in a relatively inaccessible format distributed over many source locations. A Geographic Information System provides a way to centralize and organize information electronically so that decisions regarding Land Use, Planning, Zoning, Building, Assessment, Collections, Emergencies, Infrastructure, Maintenance etc. are well informed and less time consuming. The expenses associated with lack of information and accessibility are real. Centralized access make the goals of open government far easier to realize and can reduce the burden of staff addressing individual informational needs and requests and allow them to proceed with assigned responsibilities with less interruption.
