Enterprise GIS Migration
The LIO initiated a project to migrate and implement a number of critical GIS components to further land records modernization and the establishment of an enterprise-wide system. This was driven by the need to stay current with changes in technology, better serve the County's growing demand for and sophistication in use of GIS, and better integrate GIS with County business information systems. Critical technical components that was migrated include enterprise GIS data layers, workstation ArcInfo software licenses, desktop ArcView software licenses, and priority GIS data maintenance and end-user application. Particular GIS data maintenance applications that was migrated included for parcel maintenance, address maintenance, and farm planning and tract/field maintenance.
The LIO is maintaining and updating DCiMap on an ongoing basis. Please contact Tim Confare with any questions or issues.

Applications are continously being develop. Please visit our GIS Apps & Maps page for a current list.
