What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GIS allows us to view, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, reports, and charts. A GIS helps answer questions and solve problems by looking at data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
The county's GIS contains a number of map layers including: aerial photography, parcel boundaries, street centerlines, streams & lakes, buildings, contours, zoning, city limits, utilities: water & sewer lines, hydrants, etc. Data from other sources such as tax assessment data & building permit data are used to provide additional information & analysis.
The GIS program is a partnership of local governments that includes Hall County Government and the cities of Gainesville, Flowery Branch, & Oakwood.
