Pender County Geographic Information Services (GIS) primary focus has been to centralize the creation, maintenance and dissemination of geographic data, and to provide custom mapping services. The GIS Department provides geographic information support to internal county departments, and other governmental agencies, as well as, our citizens. Examples of some geographic layers maintained by the GIS Department include digital aerial photography, zoning, streets, 911 Addresses, tax parcels,commissioner districts and zip code boundaries. GIS provides a visual approach for problem solving.
The online maps are maintained digitally for assessment purposes and are available on the Internet as part of the county GIS. Information used for creating these records comes from legally recorded instruments. Every effort is made to ensure the accurate and timely maintenance of the ownership records. Due to the number of instruments involved, and the number of departments handling these records, there is a time lag between when a document is recorded and when it is reflected on the internet.
