What is GIS?

The Delaware County Office Information (OOI) manages the County's Geographic Information System (GIS). A GIS is a computer-based mapping system which relates various types of data and information with real-world locations.

The Delaware County OOI has three primary goals:

  • To efficiently create and maintain a state-of-the-art GIS which accurately and comprehensively represents all relevant and useful geographic data and information about the County
  • To deliver this data to the general public, private sector clients, and associated governmental agencies
  • To provide expert GIS consulting and application development

The basis of Delaware County's GIS is its library of GIS data layers. These layers provide a comprehensive representation of the County's property fabric; basic infrastructure; environment; recreational facilities; governmental structure and facilities; emergency services infrastructure and facilities; and transportation network. 

These GIS data layers are developed and maintained by the OOI and other County Departments utilizing ESRI's suite of ArcGIS software. The GIS Department manages an "enterprise GIS," allowing a network of over 60 users in 16 County and City of Muncie Departments at locations throughout the City and County to access a central server database operated and maintained by the Department.

What do we do?

As an enterprise GIS, one key objective of the OOI is to seamlessly integrate GIS into the daily workflows of County and City Departments and partner organizations. In other counties and organizations, GIS integration has provided time and cost-savings, improved analysis capabilities, and enhanced decision-making capabilities. Therefore, in order to facilitate GIS integration, the OOI provides consulting services to its internal County agencies as well as its partner organizations. The OOI examines business practices for departments and develops recommended areas for applying GIS to daily tasks. Under certain circumstances, the OOI also will develop custom applications to meet the needs of County departments and partner organizations.

 

We provide Geographic Information support to all government agencies, citizens, community organizations, and many others.
Information and geographic support includes, but is not limited to:

  • Management of the county's web-based applications, website and social media accounts.
  • printed and digital map creation
  • custom web-based map applications
  • web-based data collection applications
  • geographic analysis
  • address geocoding
  • suitability studies
  • land analysis
  • hazard analysis
  • field data collection
  • spatial data collection
  • environmental analysis
  • inventory management
  • geographic systems education and presentations
  • integration of GIS into government offices
  • cartographic and graphic design

Why GIS?

Nearly 80% of information housed in government is geographic in some way. In order to make informed and accurate decisions, all geographic information involved with a certain area must be known and understood. Efficient delivery and presentation of this geographic data is what we are all about.

Our ultimate goal is to make County GIS information accessible from anywhere, by whomever needs it.
