Union County GIS/Mapping Services

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a computer system capable of creating, storing, managing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information. GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts. 

Many of the County's departments are using GIS.  The master plan for GIS in Union County is to have a system where all county departments will have access to GIS software and data. Rather than maintaining incompatible hardcopy maps, each department will be maintaining information in the GIS. Once this has been implemented the county offices will be able to store and manipulate information in a very efficient manner.
