Data and Maps Overview

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS), data and maps, program of the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham offers a wide range of mapping services to member governments. GIS utilizes spatial data to better manage and analyze the physical characteristics of local jurisdictions and serves to create greater efficiencies for city services and decision making.

The GIS Department principally serves as a support service for the Transportation, Community Planning, and Economic Development Departments of the Commission though it also serves as a mapping and analysis resource for local governments.
