Division Functions
The GIS Department is responsible for creating, maintaining, analyzing and distributing the Parish's geographic base data. The primary function of the Department is to support Parish operations. We are also responsible for administering GIS-related data requests.  

Examples of GIS Data
Geographic information systems (GISs) are essentially the computer applications that allow an organization to relate all of its data to points, lines, or areas upon the earth. Examples of GIS data include:

  • Parcels
  • Street centerlines
  • Surface water
  • Elevations (contours)
  • Aerial imagery
