GIS & Image Maps

Geographic Information System

The city Public Works/Engineering Department has a GIS (Geographic Information System) Division that develops street, property, aerial, zoning, and other types of city maps that are available to the public.

What is GIS?

Local governments use GIS to identify and analyze data graphically. GIS displays information about parcels and property lines, building structures, neighborhoods, roads, addresses, zoning, resource protection areas, trails, and parks, just to name a few. This mapping information can be queried, displayed, spatially analyzed, edited/overlaid, and linked to other databases for the purposes of citizen response, planning, preservation, and public safety initiatives. GIS is an essential tool used daily by many City departments.

While the GIS Team strives to provide accurate and current mapping data, the information contained in the GIS is not to be construed or used as a "legal description." It is not a survey product. It is not a replacement for appropriate deed research. Any determination of topography or contours, or any depiction of physical improvements, property lines, or boundaries is for general information only and shall not be used for the design, modification, or construction of improvements to real property or for flood plain information.

Designated as a Wilderness Area, this acreage has been set aside to preserve a portion of the natural Ozarks that has attracted tourists for many years. Both visitors and local citizens can enjoy this unique park with its woodland trails that wind through forest, along bluffs and across glades.
