GIS Drain Mapping Macomb County 2013

April 17, 2013

Macomb County continues its initiative to use
geographic information system (GIS) for mapping
all the drains in the county

Some 400 miles of underground drains will be mapped via GIS

The concept of managing info geographically goes way beyond a
paper map of yesteryear – all you can do with a paper map
is stick an arrow on it with a note, creating a mess of notes.
A virtual geographic map has 100′s of layers of info for 1 specific dot.
Some call GIS the act of “unlocking data trapped in paper”.
