(Geographical Information System)
This is where you will find various maps of the City of Portsmouth. A GIS is a computer-based system that enters, stores, manages, analyzes, and presents spatial (and associated nonspatial) data, combining databases and graphical operations to make a variety of products, from lists to maps.

This map is still going through several cosmetic changes so visit often to catch the latest information.
In the future there will be additional layers brought online. These include the sewers, water lines, zoning, and others.
The City of Portsmouth's primary GIS focus at the moment is the transfer of existing infrastructure maps into the GIS database.
There has also been discussion on the subject of integrating the GIS with local emergency responders like the Police and Fire Departments. This capability might enable a responder to have access to additional information that was previously unavailable.
