No GIS is successful without proper planning. Scott County recognizes that although well underway, the planning process is never completed as new datasets are required. Please refer to the Documents page to view each of these plans in their entirety.
County departments are faced with manual, antiquated processes, redundant, independent workflow, and multiple systems that are not synchronized. Not only are there increasing public requests for data in a GIS or compatible format, but there is a growing expectation that we have it. By direction of the Scott County Board of Supervisors, a GIS Steering Committee was formed with representatives from multiple departments to seek a County-wide or “Enterprise-wide” GIS solution.
