The YorkInfo Partnership is a GIS collaboration led by York Region GISB with representation by all local area municipalities, the Region, the public and Catholic school boards, and the two conservation authorities. The goal of the Partnership is to maximize the collective value in investments in GIS by enabling information access and sharing, and building technical capacity among the partners.
Through cooperation, the Partnership and its members have developed and continue to enhance an efficient information infrastructure that is requisite to manage the challenges of rapidly growing urban areas alongside vast farmlands and evironmentally sensitive sites.
This geospatial information framework enhances sharing opportunities, creates efficiencies and common applications. By developing standards and facilitated by open policies and technology access to information will increase, new business processes will be implemented, duplication of effort will be reduced and cost will be avoided among tax-funded organizations and their constituents enhancing service to the residents and businesses in York Region.
