Geographic Information Systems

Welcome to the Mapping and GIS section of the County website. Sumter County GIS is technology that enables:

  • Analysis of spatial data
  • Creation
  • Efficient mapping
  • Manipulation
  • Storage

GIS allows for a large amount of information to be displayed at once by layering datasets (roads, property, etc.), and spatial patterns may be identified from data which may not be apparent in tabular form. The ability to make instantaneous changes to variables, as well as toggle layers of information on and off, make GIS an invaluable tool for smart decision making in County departments.

What is GIS?

GIS is a computer system for assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying data. This data contains physical locations (geographic coordinates) of features and information about those features (attribute data). GIS is not only used for data storage, maintenance, and retrieval, but it is also used as an analysis tool to answer questions that are geographic in nature.
