Island County is showing off its digital capabilities.

County officials will present its GIS mapping services to the public from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15. GIS, or geographic information system, has been used extensively by the county to allow website visitors to find information on zoning, permits and critical areas.

GIS is also used to display useful information on the parcel assessor’s office values, as-builts and recent sales.

GIS Day is located in the Board of Commissioners Hearing Room.

A presentation covering how to navigate the county’s website and GIS capabilities is set for 11:30 a.m. to noon. After the presentation, an open house showcasing work county employees have done with GIS will occur.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their smart phones to GIS Day to look at mobile-friendly apps that allow users to explore the county’s non-motorized maps.
