The City of Oak Ridge recently released a new and improved geographic information system, or GIS, website. A press release said it functions like Internet map applications such as Google Maps or Bing Maps.
“The new GIS website is very efficient and user-friendly,” said Amy Fitzgerald, Oak Ridge government affairs and information services director.
The interactive maps in the GIS application allow searches for properties within the city limits. The information will display boundaries, assessed values, parcel identifications, and current owners’ names. Locations of interest such as Oak Ridge historic landmarks, schools, cemeteries, and parks can be viewed as well.
This new website was designed, built, and hosted by Geo-Jobe GIS Consulting. The City of Oak Ridge has had the ability to extend this mapping capability to the public since 2003; however, this new GIS application offers expanded functionality and many aesthetic improvements, the press release said.
