2021: A Spatial Odyssey

November 20, 2021
GIS Day is a global event during which GIS (Geographic Information Systems) users work to expand the understanding of how GIS technology and geography make a difference in our lives. GIS, a computer-based tool used to map and analyze features and events, combines the power of a database with the visualization capabilities offered by maps.  GIS Day provides an opportunity to recognize effective and creative use of spatial tools by Fairfax County staff to better serve agencies and constituents. This culminates in the presentation of the GIS Excellence Awards.  On November 17th, 2021, 15 awards were presented in 6 categories to individuals and agencies in Fairfax County government working to improve the lives of residents and increase efficiencies in the work of county staff.

The GIS Division has worked with the Department of Economic Initiatives to map the service areas for chambers and other organizations supporting Fairfax County businesses. These areas have been compiled in an interactive mapping application that can be used to search any address in the county and discover which area(s) that location falls in. (Note: chamber membership is not restricted by location; businesses and individuals should feel free to join the chamber(s) that best meet their needs.) For more information about how Fairfax County supports business activity in the county, please contact the Department of Economic Initiative's Business Experience Partnership.
