What function does GIS have within the Yavapai County Government? Yavapai County Government uses GIS technology throughout several departments including the Assessors office, Elections, Planning and Building, Roads and Flood Control among others, comprising nearly 200 users. With the ability to access the GIS, County employees can complete tasks which before, could potentially take hours or days. As an example, the digital parcel base map for the county is maintained by the Assessor’s Office using tools developed by our GIS staff. Parcel splits and combinations which previously were hand drawn on paper maps, can now be completed more efficiently utilizing GIS. Additionally, the public may now access the County’s GIS information using our custom developed Online Mapping Applications, allowing users to freely access and research county records without having to travel to a county building.
