Sedgwick County GIS was initiated
in 1996 when the Board of County Commissioners consolidated the
county mapping functions for more efficient operations, better
customer service, and to put Sedgwick County at the leading edge of
Sedgwick County Geographic Information Services (SCGIS) provides
integrated geographic mapping and analysis services and has become
the primary provider of GIS data for the Wichita/Sedgwick County region.
SCGIS is a service area within the Division of Information and Operations (DIO).
Some of the key GIS map layers include property parcels, platted
lots and blocks, election districts, tax units, city limits,
annexations, parks, schools, hydrology, and railroads.
In addition to data development, the SCGIS team provides map
development services. GIS serves as a major resource to county
staff and citizens for data conversion to support data mapping,
queries, and geo-spatial analysis.
