GIS tools such as the swipe and spyglass template in this story map help to explain the benefits of mixed-use development while illustrating best-practice examples of how the concept is being implemented to achieve efficient land use in Delaware.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology is a pivotal component of the Institute for Public Administration's (IPA) commitment to public service, research, and education.
A framework for gathering, managing, and analyzing data, GIS technology is rooted in the science of geography. Its use can serve as a new way to organize important information into visual maps and 3D scenes.
IPA has been at the forefront of GIS technology since the early 1970s. Over the years, personnel, equipment, and software have changed, but the mission to provide the highest quality mapping, data, and analysis to an ever-expanding scope has remained consistent.
IPA's trained GIS personnel use GIS mapping technology to create, analyze, and interact with a variety of maps and data sources in the following areas.
Additionally, IPA's GIS specialists work to further the understanding of GIS tools and technologies through the following strategies and initiatives.

For Delawareans and tourists alike, planning a trip is now as simple as a click thanks to GIS mapping technology. A collaboration between IPA and the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) led to the creation of the Scenic Tour of Delaware Byways Showcase, an interactive collection of GIS story maps that highlight over 100 points of interest along the state's byways system.
Additional Delaware and Delmarva-related GIS resources can be found below.
