What is GIS?
GIS stands for geographic information systems and is a form of information technology that allows viewers to interactively explore and analyze geographic data in a map. GIS involves using mapping software, hardware, and databases in order to create, maintain, and view maps.

The mission of the Peoria County GIS Division is to provide customers with up-to-date geographic information. GIS can be used in a variety of ways; improving communication, decision making, problem solving, data analysis, zoning, querying addresses and property tax information, and much more. The Division strives to provide GIS services that are easily accessible and dynamic.
Interactive Maps for Mobile Devices
Currently, the Peoria County GIS Division has developed an interactive map application known as "Parcel Value." This mobile map application allows you to view tax assessment and sales information along with GIS parcel boundaries and aerial imagery. The Parcel Value application is compatible with Apple iOS mobile devices such an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. See the Press release, News coverage & Here or Get The App yourself. It can run on iOS 5 and 4.3.
In the near future, the Division plans to provide a more robust mobile map application that would be compatible with most types of mobile devices.
