The Department of Planning & Building's geographic information system (GIS) - part of the larger, countywide enterprise GIS - is administered by information systems staff who create, maintain, analyze, and map geo-spatial data. This data is used to support many of the Department's day-to-day operations, and is made available to the general public through its LandUseView mapping application and as raw data in the form of web-based API services.
