Maps & GIS

About the GIS Mapping System

The City of Washington Geographic Information System (GIS) is used not only to maintain community-wide maps, but is also used for daily planning, zoning, code enforcement, engineering, economic development, and other activities across multiple departments.

The City obtained digital base mapping from a third party vendor in 2015 for all of the City’s corporate limits as well as the majority of it’s planning jurisdiction.

City staff continues to maintain and add information to the GIS. Recently, Public Services has begun systematic mapping of streets, sanitary sewer, water, and storm sewer systems. This mapping has recently been approached in the field by the use of global positioning systems (GPS) equipment.

Interactive Map

The City of Washington's interactive map give the public access to local information such as School Districts, Alderman Wards, TIF Districts, Enterprise Zone, Zoning, Parks, and more! Land records, or parcels in the map contain information such as Property Identification Numbers (PIN), site address, size, and assessment information maintained by Tazewell County. There are a number of tools within the map that allow users to search for locations, change the look and feel of the map, make measurements, or create custom outputs. Whether you are interested in quick land records reference, or just exploring locations within the City, the interactive map is easy to use, easy to access, and provides a wealth of information available to you. Check it out and let us know what you think!
