WELLS COUNTY GIS DEPARTMENT
The Wells County Geographic Information System (GIS) serves all of Wells County and is located at the Carnegie Government Annex, 223 W. Washington St., Bluffton.
GIS is a computerized database management system for the capture, storage, retrieval, analysis and display of spatial data. In other words, it is a digital database of the collective governmental offices. You can search from your home or office via the Internet and obtain information about Wells County.
The Web site is: www.wellscountygis.org
Also see http://www.wellscounty.org/gis for news and information relating to the office.
Wells County GIS has been online since November 2003. Feedback can be made to: GIS@wellscounty.org
It is hoped that the self-service site is beneficial to the general public. We have made it free to the public to utilize the vast information as citizens desire.
Our hopes are for this Web site to be the initial visit by the public and then to fine-tune with individual offices as needed. By utilizing this technology, the office counter and telephone traffic are reduced, allowing existing employees to perform more jobs in a timely manner.
From the standpoint of the county government and serving the interests of the taxpayers, our long-term goal is to maintain the existing employment levels and still increase the productivity of county government.
