Digital Address Solution

The Forsyth County GIS Department announced today the launch of Forsyth Address, an online address request solution designed to meet the needs of those wishing to make a new address request. By adopting an online accessible workflow, the Forsyth County GIS Department can offer the ability for residents in need of addressing services to request an address through an online web geo-form without a physical visit to the county Administration Building. Once the address process is complete, a form will be returned to the requesting resident, who can then complete water meter requests through the Water Department or permit requests through the Planning Department. To learn more about the process and access the form, please visit: Forsyth Address


The GIS team is excited to announce the release of a new way to interact and discover the power of GIS information. We have redesigned our flagship GIS Viewer to provide you with a new way of interacting and discovering the power of GIS information, from any device and any location. And, we have created a GIS Open Data Portal that allows users to access all of the publicly available GIS data for Forsyth County.

The GIS Viewer is best experienced with the Google Chrome browser.

We welcome you to explore the new features and functionality of this exciting new technology and to get you started, please take a moment to walk through the tutorials.
