• GIS Mapping

    Geographic Information System (GIS) is a framework for capturing, storing, analyzing and managing data which are spatially referenced to the earth. GIS is a computer system capable of integrating, storing, editing, analyzing, sharing, and displaying geographically-referenced information. GIS is also utilized as a tool that allows users to answer questions by analyzing spatial information and creating visual representations through maps.

  • The Planning Commission and GIS

    The Regional Planning Commission (RPC) uses GIS for many different types of applications. GIS is used for the production of visual aids, maps, and reports for the various information stored in databases. The RPC is able to analyze and produce information and answers to questions posed regarding land use, infrastructure, zoning, and environmental concerns. The RPC is responsible for maintaining various datasets related to land use such as zoning, overlay districts, and growth plan areas.

    The Planning Commission offers services regarding GIS and its applications to various city and county offices, as well as the public. The RPC has created a series of downloadable pdf maps as well as interactive web maps that can be utilized.  Maps are updated on a regular basis with new maps and tools being added.  More mapping and GIS information can be found at the websites listed on the left under Additional Information.
