GIS Program

GIS is an abbreviation for Geographic Information Systems. GIS is a database structure that allows information to be recorded and associated with a particular location. The GIS program creates and maintains accurate maps of the region and through up to date information, enhances the performance of a number of County services ranging from subdivision review to emergency response.

The County has an inventory of data layers including property parcels, building footprints, landmarks & addresses; transportation network; incorporated boundaries; elevation contours; hydrography; vegetation; SURGO soils and FEMA flood zones among others.

GIS services are available through the Development Department.
