GIS in Local Governments?

Local Governments in urbanized environment are face with many challenges and need a comprehensive way of handling information and sata, GIS for local government bodies such as townships, cities and counties can be highly beneficial.

GIS is the solutiona nd answer to local governments that are faced with the management of rapid growth, as well as those trying to cope with a diminishing tax base.

GIS as a location based services helps counties manage operations and isssues rekated to location, such as: land, or tax parcels are the primary source of income; utilities, such as electric power distribution and sewers, service parcels of land; individuals,
whether they are voters, school children or mass transit users, are spatially distributed; services, such as schooling, police, and
economic development incentives are provided by defined geographic areas.

Business and Policy Context.

Kenya’s Ministry of Planning and Devolution together with the County Governments are subjected to GIS based database system as a media for planning in the County Government. The plan will be part of the integrated development plan which shall;)

(a) Have attached to it maps, statistics and other appropriate documents; or
(b) Refer to maps, statistics and other appropriate documents that are not attached but held in a GIS based databse sytem.

Our GIS Applications and Solutions for Local Government

  • Demographic characteristics of population catchments
  1. Public Safety: Emergency management, traffic route planning, Emergency response, evacuation action plans, Climate change scenarios relating to predicted sea level rise


GIS for National Government

Governments all over the globe are increasingly required to streamline practices while adherring to complex political and regulatory requirements, one way of doing this is setting up a GIS infrastructure to help them in handling the collection, management, and automatation of data on a very large scale. GIS is the key to better decision-making and as a planning tool. Most government services are tied to location and rely on the use of geographic information to achieve their goals. Some of these disciplines include:

  • Land-use & Urban Planning
  • Subdivision review
  • Law Enforcement e.g. Permit tracking, crime control
  • Land Administration and Land Records/Parcel tax mapping
  • Election and Border demation
  • Engineering design
  • Road and utility maintenance
  • Event (crime, fires, accidents)
  • Health and Human Services
  • Economic Developmet
  • Emergency,Disaster Management
  • Public Works (Infrastructure assessment and development)
  • Cartography
  • Environmental and Natural Resources Management
  • Green asset management
  • Property management
