CMMCP Geographic Information System (GIS) Program:  updated 20-Jan-16


PLEASE NOTE: OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES ARE UNDER REVIEW, CHANGES MAY NOT BE REFLECTED IN THE INFORMATION ON THIS WEBPAGE


 

The addition of the GIS program at CMMCP has given the Project a new tool for creating a more productive, efficient mosquito control program. In time, the GIS will encompass essentially all aspects and services of CMMCP, helping in the collaboration of various departments.

 

Yearly updates of the GIS will include, but are not limited to, data from the following

programs:

 

  • Catch Basin Larvicide Program
  • Ground Larvicide Program
  • Aerial Larvicide Program
  • Surveillance Program
  • Wetlands Restoration Program

 

The following data sets will also be updated regularly:

  • No Spray Locations
  • Adulticide Service Request Locations
  • Arbovirus Activity Locations
  • Any additional requested information deemed useful to the various CMMCP Departments

 

Once updates have been made, the GIS will be able to help analyze numerous aspects and relationships of the CMMCP protocol, creating a more efficient mosquito control program. Pre-season town-by-town planning as well as end of season town-by-town reports will be created to further help the staff in their assignments. Additional mapping needs of the staff will also be incorporated into the projects of the GIS department.

 

For the participating communities of the project, assorted maps will be created for the Annual Town Reports. In addition, prospective towns may also have informational maps made that display our service activities and arbovirus locations in their surrounding towns. GIS datalayers on our program will also be made available to member cities and towns and requesting state agencies.
