Addressing Requests

The GIS Department requests that all information be provided in digital format (Microsoft Excel). This will allow the data to be processed within 3-5 business days. Information submitted in hard copy format (fax, PDF or standard letter) may take longer to process, 8-10 business days. To ensure accuracy, the GIS Department requests a site plan / layout of units within the complex. Please review the Apartment Guidlines (click to open).

Addressing requests should be emailed to gis@dekalbcountyga.gov or faxed to (404) 371-3211. You may also mail your request to 330 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Ste. 400, GIS Dept., Decatur, GA 30030.
