Harrison County Iowa
The GIS Department was created in 2000 to serve the Geographic Information System (GIS) needs of Harrison County. Our goal is to help increase the efficiency and productivity of Harrison County through the implementation of GIS applications and technology.
The GIS Department maintains a large database of digital mapping layers covering the entire county. In Harrison County's GIS, features such as parcels, municipal boundaries, zoning, land-use, hydrology, roads, bridges, and recreation areas are represented as map features which are linked to a database containing certain essential information.
GIS is used by several county departments, such as the County Conservation Board, the Auditor's Office, the County Engineer, and Emergency Management. The GIS Department maintains equipment, software and data, and produces hardcopy maps to support the use of GIS by county agencies, municipalities and many other local organizations. The GIS Department also manages the sale of mapping products and GIS data for private and public users.
