This map lets you find a Provo City park by the amenity, or amenities, available. Search for BBQ grills, or playgrounds, tennis courts, pavilions, etc. and it will return a list of parks with those amenities, and a map of course.
Here's a map that shows local election results on election night on a precinct by precinct basis. For Provo City and Provo School Board elections, this is the map you want to see.
If you appreciate how a map communicates information quickly and efficiently, you will appreciate the concepts behind GIS. A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information. For example, GIS can take a spreadsheet and visualize its data on a map, allowing us to see patterns, ask questions and identify trends.
How We Serve Provo
Provo City Geographic Information Systems provide spatial data, analysis, mapping and applications to city departments and citizens to improve efficiency and decision making. We have administrative GIS staff within the Information Systems Division which works in conjunction with GIS staff in other departments.
Using Our Maps We try to keep our maps simple, not scary. Provo City maps are accessible in a couple forms. First, we have our interactive maps like maps.provo.org. These allow the user to browse and query our GIS data. The second form includes maps in Adobe's pdf format (see the Provo Maps link on the right). These maps are useful because they can be downloaded and because you can view official maps in original form.
