GIS Day to be held Nov. 13

Residents are invited to learn more about the county’s Geographic Information Services (GIS) on GIS Day. An informational open house will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13, to highlight the county’s GIS resources that can be accessed through the county’s website. The free event will be held in the Forsyth County Administration Building (110 E. Main St., Suite 220).

 

During the open house, attendees will be able to interact with online GIS resources such as:

 

- GIS Web Browser (Find general information about the county)

- Interactive Transportation Map (See updated information on road projects)

- Insight2Forsyth (View active permits within a 30-day time period)

- Park Locator (Locate and get information on a park or amenity)

 

“We want to put the power of information in our residents’ hands,” said Forsyth County Chief Information Officer Brandon Kenney. “Our GIS tools, many of which have been recently revamped, provide access to what is happening in our county’s communities like never before.”

 

GIS staff will be available during the information workshop to answer questions and demonstrate various applications and resources available to the public.
