Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

GIS is a way to display data that can be referenced geographically.  Data that has been stored in tables can now be displayed on a map.  The data is broken up into layers such as parcels, roads, buildings, zoning districts, etc. 

The GIS Coordinator is located within the Economic and Community Development Department and performs a wide range of professional and technical work in the development, implementation, maintenance, management, and operation of the computerized geographical information system.

The GIS Office has a variety of maps for sale.  If you are interested in purchasing a map please contact the GIS Coordinator at: mstreet@smythcounty.org
