Gwinnett County Updating Geographic Website Browser

The online tool can be used to map such things as land parcels and legislative districts.

Gwinnett County officials are updating their online Geographic Information System (GIS) browser, in a manner that includes aerial photography and ground surveys.

According to a county newsletter, the county contracted Sanborn Map Company to acquire this data. Sanborn's team for this service will include WK Dickson & Co. Inc., a surveying firm based in Raleigh, N.C.

Surveyors will place temporary black and white plastic targets, sized between 10 and 12 feet and in the shapes of "V," "X," or "T", within the public right-of-way and other public access lands around the county.

Targets will be removed by mid-April, when the aerial flight and quality control of the images is expected to be completed.

For more information on the upgrade, contact Barry Puckett, at 770.822.8031 or barry.puckett@gwinnettcounty.com, or Sharon Stevenson at  770.822.8033 or sharon.stevenson@gwinnettcounty.com.

The GIS tool is available to the public on the Gwinnett County website. It enables searches for such things as legislative districts, fire stations, and street addresses.
