GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (GIS) & MAPS
GIS is the result of electronically produced maps layered on top of one another with the ability to create queries and retrieve information about the given area. We use GIS to geographically map the water and sewer infrastructure while entering information about each feature in a system database.
GIS Mission Statement
The mission of Henry County Water Authority’s (HCWA) GIS Department is to collect, maintain, and provide accurate and complete infrastructure data to employees and customers, and support data-driven decision-making throughout the authority. The GIS staff provides technology solutions to facilitate the use and interpretation of high-quality geospatial data.
The Henry County Water Authority's GIS Department uses a number of software packages to create maps, analyze geographic information, and visually examine the digital features of the infrastructure. The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can substantially increase efficiency and effectiveness for all HCWA employees. A primary goal of the GIS program is to make many of these mapping resources available to the employees in the field.
