GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is a collection of computer hardware, software, and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically‐referenced information. All geographically‐referenced information can be displayed on a map in the form of layers. Each layer depicts information about a topic of interest in a way that is user‐friendly and easy to analyze. Therefore, maps can be utilized to improve decision‐making processes through the visual representation of GIS data.

Because a large part of the data we use on the Tulalip Reservation is linked to a geographic component (an address, a parcel, a road, etc.), GIS solutions greatly contribute to the effort to streamline operations. Utilizing GIS technology enables Tulalip departments and Board of Directors to extend the capabilities of the Tribes’ existing information infrastructure. Consequently, we are able to cut costs, enhance services, and allow various departments to operate as collaborative Tribal entity.
