Our Mission Statement

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has long been an invaluable tool to the City of Austin, since 1989 when the first jurisdiction map was produced.  While technology has advanced since that time, the City of Austin has remained and continues to enhance its role as a recognized leader in GIS.  We will support the City of Austin’s mission of becoming the most livable City in the country by focusing on ways GIS can help us become greener, and by empowering citizens and staff with the geospatial information they need in a user friendly format. We will do all of this in the most efficient way possible by leveraging our existing resources to the fullest.
