New mapping service lets public search land use info, weather, restaurant ratings

Posted

Using the latest in Geographic Information Services technology, the Sumter City-County Planning Department has released a new public mapping service for the community.

The update organizes property information, floodplain maps and zoning data in one user-friendly location. The maps are also accessible by mobile devices.

"This data has been available but housed in various locations and programs," said Charles Robbins, GIS manager. "Having the data on one platform makes it easier for residents and developers alike."

The new maps are on the City of Sumter Planning Department's website at www.sumtersc.gov/mapping and include maps for: Comprehensive Planning, Parcel and Zoning, SCDOT Traffic Counts, Flood Hazards and Floodplain Identification, Census 2020, Weather and DHEC Restaurants Ratings.

"This rollout is just the beginning. We plan to add additional data as it becomes available," Planning Director George McGregor said.

For more information, contact the Sumter City-County Planning Department online or call (803) 774-1660.
