Geographic Information System (GIS)

Planning + Development - Geographic Information System (GIS) is utilizing the Cincinnati Area Geographic Information System (CAGIS) to create and maintain the Special Flood Hazard Area, Storm Sewers, and Storm Water Detention Geodatabases.

Geodatabases were created and maintained using ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop software, an integrated collection of GIS software products for building a complete GIS framework to deploy GIS functionality.

This architecture, coupled with the Geodatabase, gives us the tools to assemble intelligent Geographic Information Systems.

GIS Coverage Graphical Examples:

This polygon coverage was created using the actual flood profile elevations from the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) study, and the Consoer-Townsend Study. This coverage is to be used by civil engineers as a design aid to determine if a property is in a Special Flood HazardArea.
This coverage is NOT to be used for Flood Insurance purposes.
