GIS Coordinator Brian Kang has been with the City of Arcata for 17 years. What's GIS? It’s a map tied to a database. Thanks to Brian, people can go online, type in their address and see if their home sits in a flood zone or check out their property's zoning. Brian's map making skills helped the City garner about $16 million in grant funding to more than double its open space acreage in 18 years.Our People...Our Community...Ourcata
