Geographic Information Systems

Santa Barbara County Enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS)


Many features of interest to local government including roads, zoning, property lines, political jurisdictions, utilities or the location of an emergency call are geographically based and therefore can be located, inventoried and viewed in new ways using geographic information system (GIS) and global positioning system (GPS) technology.  Utilization of user-friendly, web-based interactive maps and self-service applications increases constituent satisfaction and helps organizations save time and costs associated with accessing county information. The County Enterprise GIS web-based technology can grow to meet service needs of internal and external clients and provide 24 hour public service.t

Newly acquired County GIS staff and resources will help address the challenges of 21st-century public service. From financial management, human resources and procurement applications to performance management and services automation, GIS technology will position the County of Santa Barbara to optimize performance while maximizing the use of business data for enhanced decision making. .

A fully integrated County Enterprise GIS will extend the concept of eGIS interoperability and integration beyond just spatial data and technology and create new value for government by leveraging the power of place and analytics in support of decision-making, science, governance, and operations.
