Geographic Information Systems



Understanding the needs and achieving the goals of a community, county, state or nation requires one essential thing: information. Accurate, accessible, timely, clear, information. That’s what the county’s Geographic Information System (GIS) is about. It’s why the initiative was established in 1995 and today represents one of the most important business tools available to county departments and citizens.


Common uses of GIS include:

  • Supports economic development activities.
  • Supports public safety activities like 911 dispatching and disaster planning.
  • Supports land records management.
  • Supports drain planning, engineering, and site plan development.
