News:
Williams County GIS has just released an online Data Download web page.  This will allow GIS users to click and download data directly to their computer.




Geographic Information System  (GIS). An organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information. GIS uses computer software to link geographic information (where things are) with descriptive information (what things are), unlike a flat paper map, where "what you see is what you get", a GIS can present many layers of different information (ESRI).

Williams County uses GIS for managing and developing GIS data.  We also use GIS to display and map county data.  We produce printed maps and web maps using ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) software. The data is available as a resource for the public and the county staff.


Located in the County Administration Building, (CAB) Old MDU building.
