Broward County GIS conducts geographic spatial analysis and mapping services while providing enterprise-wide governance for GIS, including establishing and maintaining standards and infrastructure for GIS within Broward County government. The GIS group is available to provide GIS support to other county agencies that do not have these capabilities and to serve as liaison between County agencies and GIS consultants.

 
 
Broward County GIS is also responsible for coordinating and conducting the GIS Users Group, which typically meets the last Wednesday of each month. The Users Group is a forum for networking between GIS users across the County and South Florida, providing access to training and the latest technology within the field.
 
  Broward County GIS offers select GIS data free to the public for download. Data is provided in a zipped shapefile format and is the best available at this time.

“A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.”

“GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.”
