The First Step in Municipal GIS

When it’s time to have pizza, which of these do you reach for: a phone, a frozen pizza, a bag of flour?

Your first step towards starting a municipal geographic information system (GIS) is to determine your preferred project approach. Do you want to order delivery, bake frozen, or start from scratch? Will you hire someone to do the job, have someone provide you with all the parts and pieces for your use, or develop everything on your own?
