What is GIS?
A geographic (or geographical) information system (GIS) that captures, stores, analyzes, manages and presents data that is associated with a geographical location.
What type of information is available?
We have a variety of different types of information from assessing and mapping data. Many town boards, committees and departments as well as the general public will find useful information here. For details on the information current available on this site, please review the section on “Map Layers” below.
Using the OnlineGIS system
When you first arrive at our “OnlineGIS” site, you will see a map of the town in the main window along with a tool bar across the top. Here you will find tools that allow you to zoom in and out, pan across the map, get information on a particular location or parcel, measure distance and area and print the map that you are viewing. You can also change the type of may displayed such as a parcel map, aerial view or relief map.
There are several feature controls in the left hand column. You can search for a map by the owner’s name, parcel ID or property address, turn map layers on and off, view details of a selected location or even zoom into an area of interest.
We encourage you to take advantage of the “Help” option when you first arrive at our “OnlineGIS” site and review the use of the tools and buttons. This will make it easier for you to navigate this new system.
Areas of Interest
