Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Geographic Information Systems, or GIS, are ways of mapping, analyzing, storing, and retrieving geographic data using advanced technology including hardware and software.

The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) has a public web mapping site giving users to access to information on properties we own and hazard areas we regulate. To access this information please go to the mapping portal:
