ABOUT HAMBURG GIS
Hamburg Township operates and maintains its own Geographic Information System (GIS). Simply stated, a Geographic Information System allows for viewing of multiple layers of data about specific locations on a map.
The primary function of the GIS Department is to create and maintain the data that provides the backbone for the Geographic Information System (GIS). The Department is also responsible for the in-house production of all maps and the coordination of the mapping and/or surveying projects with third parties.
The GIS allows for the quick and efficient analysis of data, performing operations that would be time consuming or impossible to complete otherwise. The core of GIS revolves around a digital base parcel map that is updated on a monthly basis. Various layers of data are attached, which includes assessing, road, sewer and zoning information.
PUBLIC COMPUTER GIS MAP VIEWING IS AVAILABLE AT THE TOWNSHIP HALL
Two computers in Hamburg Township Hall are available for public can use for access to the GIS. Basic instructions are provided and employees will be happy to assist you if needed. An instruction sheet will be provided to guide the user through basic functions.
In addition to the mapping features, a user is able to view assessing, zoning, road and sewer information. Maps are available for purchase at the Township Hall.
