Village of Skokie Maps
The Village of Skokie maintains an accurate and sophisticated geographic information system (GIS). The Village joined the GIS Consortium in 2005 and is one of 23 area municipal member communities united by the goal of enabling GIS technology for Village staff and residents. GIS integrates maps and other geographical data for capturing, managing, analyzing and displaying all types of geographically referenced information. GIS technology works by linking information in databases to a specific place or location and allows users to visualize where things are with descriptive and illustrated information. GIS can be used for nearly everything from scientific investigations, environmental impact assessments and urban planning to sales and marketing.
