GIS/ Information Technology
Serving as the Regional GIS Service Center for northeastern Massachusetts, MVPC provides GIS services and expertise to each of our 15 cities and towns. The GIS department has a suite of software and technical equipment to meet the needs of changing municipal landscape and is staffed with three full-time GIS professionals with GISP certifications. We first embarked on developing a Geographic Information System (GIS) in 1995 with the recognition that GIS is a tool that assists planning efforts and increases efficiency across the entire region. Technology is changing more rapidly than ever these days – let us help you navigate how to implement the applications best suited to your needs.

We’ve earned our GIS stripes
We have extensive experience working with municipal assessing, planning, public works, engineering, and building departments. Through contract-funded projects and local technical assistance, our staff has created a broad network of contacts across the region and successfully completed numerous initiatives. We also serve as the official GIS coordinator for several of our municipalities, and advise our remaining communities on their use of GIS. By working with us, communities are able to develop and maintain GIS capabilities at a significantly reduced cost, made possible through reduced training costs and the use of shared services.
