Denton County offices will be closed on Monday, May 27th in observance of Memorial Day
The Geographic Information Systems (G.I.S.) Division was started in October 1995. This was to provide the growing population of Denton County with an efficient method of storing, editing and displaying political, geographical, demographic, and digital data. With this shared electronic database, County departments and the general public now have access to printed map products, internet mapping technology, and general County data either free of charge or for a nominal fee.
While the G.I.S. Division continues to function as a "map shop," the focus of the Division has shifted from the collection and editing of data, to more applications driven needs. Through technology, education and training, the G.I.S. Division serves as a clearinghouse of information for Denton County. Other County departments and the public can use G.I.S. resources to assist in evaluating current issues, such as economic development, public health and safety, and environmental quality. G.I.S. is part of the Denton County Department of Technology Services.
The GIS Division creates easy-to-read visual displays that depict political and municipal boundaries, emergency service districts, road improvement projects, FEMA floodplain, fresh water districts, transportation networks, voter precincts, oil and gas wells and other publicly available data.
