Our Mission

To accurately map any and all features above, on, and below the ground that may lend support to better serve the people of Muskingum County.

What We Do

The Muskingum County GIS Department is the office responsible for updating and maintaining maps for county departments and public use. These duties include updating the digital tax maps (parcel layer), issuing new addresses for use with the E911 system, the inventory of county owned utilities, and creation of maps and data for use by any and all governmental agencies.

What is GIS

GIS or Geographic Information Systems, is a comprehensive mapping utility that allows the user to overlay many types of data. This overlapping of data lets us look at many different aspects of an area on one map, whereas in the past it would have taken many. The other main advantage to GIS is that it can hold limitless information on a point line of polygon, a database is linked to these features and at any time it can be queried using other features on the map or a common attribute that they all hold.
