GIS Services


Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a frame work for collecting, analyzing, and managing data in locational relationships.  For the City of Westland, GIS is everything because we deal with the concept of where.

Where is the idea that most information can be traced back to a specific physical location.  Examples include:

  • water outage
  • pothole
  • downed tree
  • criminal incident
  • availability of service

The Department of Innovation and Technology works with our partners and the other departments to create maps and dashboards that visually represent the information they need to provide services to the residents of Westland in a more efficient and proactive manner.

The Department and Technology has a number of maps available for the public to use and will be adding more as new information relevant to the residents come available.
