Article title

GIS analysis in uniformed public services

Title variants
Languages of publication
The article aims to show the possible use of geographic information system (GIS) and GIS software, namely various types of GIS analyses, in the uniformed public services. Such software enables the collection of spatial data that can then be associated with tabular information, the form in which data is stored by uniformed services. Using the collected data, public officials may perform different GIS analyses and visualize statistical data in the form of clear thematic maps. This allows, for example, to visualize and locate the number of road accidents or crimes. Thanks to such solutions, uniformed services could gather a consistent amount of information and therefore improve the quality of their work and insure more effective security, all for the benefit of society. The geographical information system should find a wider application within Polish public services.
