Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Geographic Information Systems:
Four main components:
STC maintains a Geographic Information System (GIS) based on data developed in-house and aquired from local resources. STC utilizes ESRI GIS Software products. GIS Services include map production, analysis, and provision of available data layers in the form of shapefiles,images, and online viewers.
STC's GIS supports program areas that include water quality, municipal planning, environmental planning, telecommunications, demographic analysis, economic development, and comprehensive planning and zoning updates for various municipalities within Steuben, Chemung, and Schuyler Counties.
Over the past several years, STC has built an extensive collection of data for our three-county region from various local, state, and federal agencies. Some examples are recent aerial photography, roads, municipal boundaries, floodplains, streams, wetlands, and aquifers to name a few. This information is easily made available via STC's Regional Internet Map Server
Our newest dataset, Telecommunications, is available by request at the STC office. This information is extremely important as the region moves forward. This data will assist in planning for current and future telecommunications needs.
STC produces GIS (Geographic Information Systems) maps for local governments and individuals. Examples of requested maps include: tax maps; 911 plans; highway data/ maintenance schedules; census information; environmental data; sewer/water maps; soils/land cover maps; contours/topography maps; and zoning maps. A summarized listing of GIS coverages maintained at STC can be found in the Data/Reports section.
