Geographical Information Systems
GIS (Geographic Information System) is responsible for mapping the City of Palm Coast utilizing advanced, geographical data software. The software visually represents complex information in the form of shapes and symbols. Embedded in these shapes and symbols is information that can be viewed as maps, as well as extracted in the form of a word document or graphical chart. From the map itself you can view a district, a zone, a parcel, and an individual plat. All of which can be printed in the form of a drawing along with documentation of legal descriptions, restrictions, ownership etc.
