Summary: This project is composed of an illustrative guidebook and companion StoryMap developed by the Utah Community Development Office in partnership with rural, regional planners from across the state. The intent of the project is to provide small town leaders, planners, and managers with a basic understanding of geographic information systems (GIS) and how GIS technology can support planning and municipal management activities. It gives an overview of what GIS is, how it can aid local governments, and outlines strategies for overcoming actual and perceived barriers to GIS implementation – especially those that inhibit small towns.
