Pyramid Lake Geographic Information Systems (GIS) ProgramContinued development of Tribal GIS baseline data: roads, streams, land assignments, irrigated fields, ditches, lake bathymetry, residential areas, property status, and supporting metadata.
The Pyramid Lake Department of Water Resources has been applying GIS operations
since 1995 when it created and developed its GIS operations. GIS is defined
as a collection of computer hardware, software, and geographic data for
capturing, storing, updating, manipulating, analyzing, and displaying
all forms of geographically referenced information. A geographic information
system is a system for management, analysis, and display of geographic
knowledge, which is represented using a series of information sets such
as maps and globes, geographic data sets, processing and work flow models,
data models, and metadata. A GIS can produce information that answers
specific questions and allows you to share that information with others.
By visualizing relationships, connections, and patterns in data, informed
decisions can be made to increase efficiency throughout an organization.
