GIS Center makes mapping easy
April 2, 2001
Getting information about land parcels, streets and how to find your way around the city and county is as easy as clicking a mouse under a new Internet map service provided by the Geographic Information Systems Center at Austin Peay.
The map server allows anyone with an Internet connection to examine or gather map information about Clarksville and Montgomery County.
"Our job is to help city and county government serve the public using GIS technology," said Bob Brundage, manager of the center. "Now we can do this through the Internet. This new service will allow the public to use Internet mapping technology to get the information they are after.
"People can zoom in or out, pan and print the map on the screen with tools on the server," he added. "They can even see their road frontage."
The public can get information 24 hours a day, seven days a week," he said.
Currently, there is one map service online, but center personnel are working on others to show zoning, schools, voting districts and more.
