What Is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates computer technology for collecting, managing, analyzing, and displaying all kinds of spatially referenced information. The information is arranged in data layers in the form of parcels, roads, boundaries, etc. It can be searched to find specific locations or browsed to reveal tabular data attached to particular area of interest.
The County's GIS is maintained and operated within the Department of Community Development. GIS maps are used for viewing and analysis by most other departments, including Commissioner of Revenue, Fire and Rescue, Planning, Public Works, Sheriff’s Office, Voter Registrar, County Schools, and Emergency Services.
