About the Jackson County GIS Department



The Jackson County GIS department was first formed in 2007. We currently consist of two full time and one part time positions. Our mission is to provide and support GIS technology in an effective, intelligible, and timely manner that meets the needs of all County departments, agencies, and cities within the County and enables them to better serve the public. We invite you to view our available maps . We regularly publish our data onto QPUBLIC and several local arcserver apps for you to view.

What is GIS?


A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer-based tool for mapping and analyzing things that exist and happen on the surface of the Earth. GIS technology integrates common database operations such as query and statistical analysis with unique visualization offered by maps. These abilities distinguish GIS from other information systems and make it valuable to a wide range of public organizations for explaining events, predicting outcomes, and planning strategies. Mapmaking and geographic analysis are not new, but a GIS performs these tasks better and faster than conventional manual methods. Before GIS technology, only a few people had the skills necessary to use geographic information to help with decision making and problem solving.
