What is GIS?
GIS, or Geographic Information Systems, is a computer-based framework that allows users to view, analyze, and edit geospatial data. Here at Walla Walla County, the GIS Department stores and maintains geographic data while also making it available to the public through online and printed maps. There are handful datasets available for download and review that can be extremely helpful when submitting a site plan for an application or even for simply looking up the acreage of any given parcel on the Interactive Map Hub. 
We look forward to assisting you with your construction projects and thank you for your patience and cooperation!
