Explore Land & Property with New GIS Viewer

Post Date:02/09/2017 2:20 PM
How is my property zoned? How far is my child’s school from my property? What are the elevation changes along the new jogging route that I am trying out? A new online tool from the City of Roswell helps you quickly and easily answer these and other questions related to property and land in Roswell.

Although citizens have always been able to contact the City to ask questions about a property via phone or e-mail with City staff, the GIS Viewer enables citizens to delve even further into detailed information about a location. The GIS Viewer offers interactive options such as measuring distances between points, elevation changes along a route, and the ability to view property through several types of map layers.

“The new Roswell GIS Viewer puts an intuitive and versatile tool in the hands of our citizens so that they can learn about properties in a much more dynamic and engaging way,” said Patrick Baber, Manager of the City’s Geographic Information System (GIS) Division. “Data is streamed directly from Roswell’s GIS databases, so updates are made in real-time.”

The GIS Viewer is available on desktop and mobile devices and gives the user the ability to zoom and pan to locations around the City. Users can quickly find locations they are interested in by using the address locator, or they can use other types of input, such as land lot number, park or trail name, and polling place.

The GIS Viewer also includes quick access to the most commonly requested data, including Unified Development Code (UDC) Zoning, Parcel/Property Lines & Ownership, City Limits, and Historic District boundaries.
