Mapping Tompkins County !

Welcome to Tompkins County Geographic Information Services... a division of the Department of Information Technology Services (ITS).

 

Our Mission

The mission of Tompkins County GIS is to serve the Tompkins County Community through the distribution of relevant GIS data and mapping resources to assist departments and municipal stakeholders on an ongoing basis. Tompkins County GIS also focuses on the production and distribution of meaningful datasets, paper maps and interactive mapping applcations for local businesses and residents.

Tompkins County began its investment in GIS in the mid 1990s with the conversion of the County's tax mapping paper archives to a multi-layered GIS dataset. Today, the County has developed a robust GIS that is available and used by many county departments, local governments, and the community at large.
