(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ROANOKE COUNTY, Va., April 23 -- Roanoke County issued the following news release: Roanoke County has launched a new generation of public geographic information system (GIS) applications that allow greater and easier access to the County's mapping, tax parcel, zoning, and government services data.


Roanoke County has launched a new generation of public geographic information system (GIS) applications that allow greater and easier access to the County's mapping, tax parcel, zoning, and government services data.

The new applications can be found in the new Maps & Apps Gallery through the County's GIS page at www.roanokecountyva.gov/GIS. The gallery includes several single-focused applications for the most popular day-to-day uses, real estate parcel and tax information, government services, and voter information.

Professional and power users of Roanoke County's GIS data will be able to access advanced tools with the new OneView application also found in the Maps & Apps Gallery.

The new GIS applications are designed with the latest technology to serve the expectations of a growing audience of mobile and casual users. Most applications in the gallery are optimized to be "mobile friendly" for use on smartphones and tablets, and all of the applications are more accessible to a wider array of modern desktop and mobile Internet browsers.

"Along with greater accessibility, the framework behind the new GIS applications is more flexible as well," GIS Manager David Wray said. "This enables staff to more easily maintain the applications in-house, add new features when available, and create new GIS applications as needed." Efficient delivery of technology services is a core mission for Roanoke County's GIS Services group under Communications and Information Technology.
