GIS (Geographic Information Systems) & Mapping

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system capable of capturing, storing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information, or, data identified according to location.  The power of a GIS comes from the ability to relate different information in a spatial context to reach a conclusion about this relationship.

Benton County uses maps, aerial photos, and GIS on a daily basis for many county functions.  We have made the following information available online to the public.
