What in the world is a GIS mapping system and how is it helpful? The city’s Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is an online collection of interactive maps + applications created to help citizens view city maps, road closures, flood zones, and more.
Some of the popular maps on the site:
- Development Tracker Map — Watch applications filed with the Metro Planning Department as they move through the approval process.
- Sidewalk Requirements Map — This map helps determine whether sidewalk construction is required on a particular property.
- Capital Improvements Budget Viewer Map — Keep up with projects from the current Capital Improvements Budget, covering the next 6 years.
The website also provides the Nashville Emergency Response Viewing Engine (NERVE) map, which includes real-time info about road closures, school closings, locations of emergency shelters, and more.
