Mayor Jerry Abramson today announced details of a collection of maps that will be on display in the second-floor rotunda of Louisville Metro Hall during February. The maps represent the range of capabilities of Louisville Metro’s LOJIC (Louisville and Jefferson County Information Consortium) geographic-information system.
“It’s amazing what you can learn from maps, and how effective maps can be as communication tools,” Abramson said. “This display provides a sampling of the various applications of maps and the services LOJIC provides to our community.”
LOJIC maps are widely used for government and utility field activities, public meetings, at customer service counters and in development planning sessions.
The maps on display cover subjects such as:
• Population density
• Air quality monitoring
• Inventory of natural areas in Louisville
• Vehicle traffic volume throughout Louisville
• Location of government-owned properties
• Areas where students speak English as a second language
• Floodwall system Areas eligible for Retail
• Forgivable Loan program
• Otter Creek Park
LOJIC offers a number of interactive maps and mapping services online at www.lojic.org.
LOJIC is a nationally recognized, award-winning GIS technology partnership of Louisville Metro Government, the Metropolitan Sewer District, Louisville Water Company and the Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator’s Office. LOJIC also has working relationships with Jefferson County Public Schools, Seven County Services, LG&E, KIPDA, University of Louisville, Community Resource Network, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, and several Suburban Cities and Jefferson County Fire Protection Districts.
