GIS technology makes use of several integrated layers of data for a given geographic area in order to gain useful knowledge of that area. Information such as streets and addresses; utility infrastructure, zoning districts, parks and trails, ecosystems, etc. are used to map and track information of a given geographic area. GIS mapping is unlimited in its usefulness for municipal planners, utilities, conservationists, developers, businesses and first-responders and it has broad application in both the public and private domain.
The Riley County Community GIS Website utilizes multiple data sets that are maintained by both Riley County GIS and the City of Manhattan GIS. Examples of the data sets you will find in this application include County and City boundaries, ownership parcels, street centerlines, zoning districts, parks and trails; water & sanitary sewer networks, political jurisdictions, and aerial photographic images. As is the nature of any GIS, this website can be used in a wide spectrum of applications.
