County GIS

The Centre County GIS Office is a team of GIS Technicians and Specialists, supervised and assisted by a Coordinator. GIS staff perform mapping and spatial database maintenance work for various Centre County Departments including, but not limited to, Planning, Tax Assessment, 911, and the Conservation District. An underlying department goal is to enable Centre County Government to work more effectively and efficiently by utilizing spatial information and GIS.

Open Data

The GIS Department has now created an Open Data Site for the free distribution of GIS Data. This site allows you to search for layers by key words or by themes. You can download the data in Excel spreadsheet format, or via ArcGIS Shapefile format. You can also filter the selection prior to downloading the data. Additionally, we have links to our public facing Mapping websites and story boards.
