Wednesday was International GIS Day, and you're not alone if you don't know what a Geographic Information System is, but chances are it has helped you in some way.
The Winnebago GIS maps out our county with layers of pictures. Wednesday students used the tool to find maps of their homes. Eight agencies in Winnebago County share this data. WinGIS contains tons of information that all municipalities use to make decisions faster than they would be able to with normal maps.
