About GIS

"A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.

GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry."

The DC GIS Office provides numerous mapping and map-related services to both the Douglas County organization and the general public. GIS has a role to play in a wide variety of County functions and public activities. Our vision is to continually put better and better geo-spatial tools and data into people's hands so that they may better their lives and the lives of others. 

Who We Are

Douglas County GIS is one part of the GIS & IT Customer Service Division of the County’s Technology Services Department. As a  department, we serve the various technology needs of Douglas County government.

One aspect of the GIS Office that sets us apart, however, is that we also stand ready to provide services directly to the citizens and businesses of Douglas County, as well as our surrounding neighbors.

Let’s expand on just what all this means.

What We Do

  • As the primary mapping office for the county, we assemble, create, and maintain a full catalog of county-related spatial data.
  • We provide public access to most of this information via web-based mapping applications.
  • We perform a comprehensive list of geo-spatial functions for county offices, and when appropriate, to other agencies, organizations, and to the public.
  • We serve the public by working with local public safety agencies during events, emergencies, and disasters.
  • Under inter-local contract, we are the GIS service provider for Lyon County, one of our neighboring Nevada jurisdictions. 

Our Mission Statement

The Geographic Information Systems Division develops and maintains a countywide spatial data catalog to provide up-to-date mapping and analysis services to increase efficiency, improve accuracy, reduce redundancy, and provide spatially analytical tools for decision makers in county departments, residents, businesses, as well as our visitors to Douglas County.
