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.

The purpose of the Union County GIS Parcel Access program is to provide data containing geographic information about Union County. In the preparation of this data, every effort has been made to offer the most current, correct, and clearly expressed information possible. However, inadvertent errors can occur, and information placed on the data not intended to replace any official source. This information is presented "as is" and without warranties, either expressed or implied. Users are advised that their use of any County On-Line Application is at their own risk. Union County assumes no responsibility for any decision made or any actions taken by the user based upon information obtained from this website. The user agrees that Union County shall be held harmless from all actions, claims, damages or judgments arising out of the use of County data obtained from this website.
