GIS and Maps

The ECTC and its member agencies use GIS for a wide range of applications. GIS is an important tool that is commonly used in the decision making process for transportation planning. GIS can be used to create something as simple as a graphical map of a walking route in the downtown Elmira area or can be as complex as comparing multiple layers of information such as pavement condition, traffic volumes, bus and trucking routes and commercially zoned properties to determine the best project to add to the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). GIS has become an essential tool as Chemung County moves forward with managing its many assets in the City of Elmira DPS and County DPW. We collect and update data annually to include information about street widths, surface condition, types, bridge condition, traffic volumes, condition of signs and striping and the location of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. This information allows the County and its partners to more efficiently monitor and maintain the road system and related facilities.
