|Geographic Information System (GIS) Program
|Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency • Public Water Systems Supervision Program
The PWSSP has implemented a GIS program and
encourages all Navajo Nation community
planners to become involve in environmental
planning in their community development
initiatives. Protection of the community's drinking
water source(s) is very important as it will have
serious impact on the community. Planning
support systems can measure and compare
performances of different planning scenarios
according to planner- or citizen-defined indicators
for land use, transportation, natural resources,
and employment, to name a few. As communities
grow, concerns over the placement of gas
stations, sewer lagoons as opposed to septic
tanks, hospitals, mortuaries, industrial buildings
all need to be considered.
GIS's mission is to establish a positive working
relationship to provide computer generated map of
various layers, boundaries and community
watering point information on the Navajo Nation.
PWSSP will continue to collect spatial data for
access and distribution of non-sensitive data to
GIS program is preparing to implement a map
module and make it available for chapter planners
