VENICE - GIS stands for geographic information system. GIS allows users to visualize patterns, take measurements, and collect and analyze data. In honor of today, the City of Venice's Don Hubbard has created a simple and fun online survey for the public.  

"What you do is you click on the link, it brings up the survey, and it asks you the one question. On the map you just type in a search for your hometown or you can zoom around on the map. Place the pink and just after you're done just click submit and places a symbol on the map," City of Venice's Don Hubbard said.
