Geographic Information System (GIS)
The Geographic Information System (GIS) division of the Planning Department houses and maintains spatial and tabular information about various items in Rome and Floyd County. Under the direction of the GIS Administrator, the Department assimilates data from various City and County Departments and publishes them as an aggregate entity. The data are used by other Departments and the Public to verify important information about locations in Rome and Floyd County, such as Zoning, Property Information, City Limit Boundary, etc.. Analysis of the data is also performed to check for various government related functions on an as needed basis.
The Rome and Floyd County GIS uses ESRI software to create and maintain its geographic data. All data are stored as either ArcGIS Shapefile or Geodatabase files. Databases in various other file formats, such as dbase, Access or Excel are also linked to the spatial data. Raster data are stored as georeferenced TIFF, MrSID or JPEG format files. All data that originates from the department are in Datum NAD83 Feet, State Plane Coordinates, Zone Georgia West or WGS1984 Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere).
GIS data is available via our website to the public. Bulk or customized distribution of data to other GIS professionals will be considered on a case by case basis. Please see the fee schedule for pricing of digital data and printed maps.
