Department Information


The City of Bozeman's GIS Department began in February 2000 with the goal of creating new processes for recording, maintaining, and visualizing critical information.  With 14 years of success and numerous nationally recognized awards, the City of Bozeman's GIS department now manages over 140 data layers, 8 interactive maps, has 3 full time employees (over 30 years combined experience!), and has engrained itself into the fabric of many city processes and work-flows.  From fire response times to water and sewer operations, the GIS department works hard to provide data to those who need it with the hopes of making the City of Bozeman a better place.

Purpose Statement

To provide accurate and complete spatial data for the City of Bozeman. The GIS division will use this data to stimulate intelligent growth and management decisions while promoting the use of electronic data publicly in a fair, efficient, and effective manner. Please explore our core areas of interest and our comprehensive data list documents for more information.

Public Outreach: GIS tools allow easier communication within the organization, including the public, for more transparency in decision making.

Infrastructure Management: Several departments participate in managing their assets with applications designed to keep better records, save time, fuel, and improve efficiency.

Logistics: GPS & GIS provide critical routing needs for solid waste and snow plow vehicles to minimize redundancy and reduce overall mileage.
