The GIS Division is the City’s geographic information system solution that collects, analyzes and delivers GIS information to internal and external audiences. The division acts as the repository for over 1.6 million GIS records of City assets, like water and sewer infrastructure, facilities and parks, and the supporting attribute data for each. GIS partners with the Bell County Tax District, the Central Texas Council of Governments and the Bell County 9-1-1 Center to maintain accurate land ownership, addresses and growth records as well as long-range transportation plans. Through a series of maps and map layers, City staff and the public are able to access citywide GIS data like city boundaries and road maps and parcel specific information like zoning, voting precincts and trash collection schedules.
