Geographic Information System

What Is GIS?
GIS or Geographic Information System is a system of computer software, hardware, and data with personnel, to help store, manage, analyze, and present information that is tied to any geographic location. It allows us to visualize, manipulate, and display spatial data.

The City of Chino Hills' Geographic Information System is used to support all City Departments in the creation of maps, as well as a tool to support decision-making in areas such as planning, design, maintenance, and repair.

How Long It’s Been Around
GIS in the City of Chino Hills extends back before the City became incorporated in 1991. In 1985, Water Works District 8 required mapping information. The County of San Bernardino’s GIMS was placed under contract to produce base maps for the City’s GIS. When the City was incorporated and officially recognized as the City of Chino Hills, mapping needs were still being addressed.

However, from 1993 to 1995 the City was without a GIS. This void was soon filled and GIS returned in 1996, re-equipping the City with a powerful tool and resource.

GIS Today
GIS in the City of Chino Hills continues today with improvements in speed, access, and information acquisition.
