The DeKalb County GIS Department is a service agency created to direct the development of the county's Enterprise GIS system bringing efficiency and effectiveness to county mapping functions and databases. Many of the departments have GIS integrated in to their business practices and products.
DeKalb County uses this information for planning and zoning, land records, parks, transportation planning, traffic and accident analysis, elections administration, public safety (police and fire), public utilities (watershed), economic development, environmental and natural resource management, to name only a few applications. Our GIS data is also integrated into other county systems such as our property appraisal and tax billing systems, building permitting, code enforcement, fire marshal, and business licensing system. A standardized address system is in place and integrates with multiple county business applications including E911.
