The Information Technology (IT) Department provides centralized service to all departments throughout the City of Mishawaka. IT is constantly seeking new ways to manage and utilize data and electronics in order to minimize the amount of time it takes to complete tasks, access and provide information, and integrate the tools available to the various departments.
In 2009, as part of the re-organization of Departments, the function of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Department was consolidated under the IT Department. The City's three full-time GIS personnel are focused on the development of a common electronic base map containing high-resolution aerial photography and data layers showing the geographical location of infrastructure and related information for the entire county. Examples of base mapping data layers include road centerlines, road edges, railroads, hydrology (includes rivers, streams, and ponds), and parcel boundaries.
