A geographic information system (GIS) is a combination of hardware, people, procedures, software tools and data for the creation, display, management, and analysis of geographic information. GIS technology integrates common database operations with spatially referenced data and maps.
We provide GIS data and services for County personnel and the public. Check the Interactive Maps page for applications to use through your web browser. We also have maps in PDF format that you may view or download and use.
Many County departments rely on GIS as a tool to gather, query, and analyze information for any given area in Butte County. GIS is used to support land use, public health, emergency services including police and fire support, water and resource conservation, elections, communications, and public works projects, among others.
Butte County GIS is also an active participant in regional GIS groups with other agencies to coordinate and share information. Check our Links page to access other GIS related agency websites. With some information eg, zoning or building permits it is best to contact the city jurisdiction where the property resides.
