Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
The VAPDC GIS/Technology Committee focuses on the utilization of information technology (IT), demographics, and geographic information systems (GIS) to identify best practices to assist planning districts in their missions. By working with state agencies, and through the pooling of resources, the VAPDC GIS/Technology committee enhances the IT and GIS capabilities of each district, while providing a valuable resource for state agencies and local governments. Each PDC/RC also serves as the Affiliate State Data Center for its region. In such capacity, GIS applications play an integral part in aiding PDCs/RCs in fulfilling their state information obligation.
