Quinte West Maps

The City of Quinte West GIS Division was created in the spring of 1999.  Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the input, storage, manipulation, analysis, reporting, and output of digital spatial data using computers and peripherals. 

The GIS Division maintains multiple GIS applications including a Fire Dispatch System, specialized web mapping systems, a GPS vehicle reporting system, and the foundation for the emergency notification system called PRISM. The City's GIS staff also maintain a wide range of geospatial layers.  The GIS Division has developed data sharing agreements with Land Information Ontario (Province of Ontario) for base data and the Ontario Road Network.  In 2008 and 2013, the City worked closely with Land Information Ontario, partnering in the DRAPE & SCOOP imagery projects which was the acquisition of colour 20 cm resolution digital aerial photography for the region.

GIS at the City has grown tremendously from only several users in 1999 to well over 130 staff presently utilizing GIS in all departments. This growth was made possible through online GIS applications.  Web GIS technology has also allowed the public access to geospatial data and applications. 

Since 2007, the City of Quinte West has won 4 major awards for its GIS applications, including ESRI's international award of Special Achievement in GIS (SAG).

GIS staff was successful in developing and implementing a GeoConnections Federal GIS funding application in 2008.  GeoConnections Funding was used for the further development of the PRISM application.  In 2002, GIS staff also was successful with GeoSmart Provincial Funding.
