GIS

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system capable of capturing, storing, analyzing, and displaying information related to positions on the Earth’s surface. GIS data is used to create a visual representation that enables people to view, analyze, and understand relationships, patterns, and trends. Digital map data consists of a number of map layers such as parcels, subdivisions, street centerlines, contours, streams, city limits, flood zones, and zoning.

The GIS Staff is responsible for the development and maintenance of the county’s digital spatial databases and for providing mapping and data services to local government departments and staff. The public may access the mapping services by clicking on the Map Inventory link.
