Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is used quite often in everyday experiences. If you have ever used MapQuest, Google Maps, or Bing Maps, you have utilized a form of GIS. It can be helpful when creating custom maps, delineating boundaries, analyzing data, gathering geographical data, measuring areas and distances, showing change over time, and many other uses.

There are many datasets in our county GIS that may be useful to you. Here are just some of the layer sets available for use: roads, trails, parcels, land ownership, soils, hydrology, vegetation, boundaries, utilities, floodplains, etc.
