The Geographical Information System (GIS) Division is a critical part of the Engineering Department. The GIS Division is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Town's digital spatial database and for providing state-of-the-art mapping and data services to various town departments, citizens, and businesses.
A major goal of the GIS Division is to continually develop and maintain GIS to improve town efficiency and costumer service. The GIS Division seeks to ensure that Stoughton's public decision-makers, commissioners, and others have access to geographic information that is complete, timely, accurate, and reliable. The Engineering Department promotes the use of the GIS and related technologies to more effectively and efficiently address problems, develop plans, and manage the natural, cultural, economic, and physical resources of the town.
