In order to meet growing demands, the Johnson County Commissioners and Johnson County Council created a Geographic Information System (GIS) Department in November 2006. Our mission is to build a centralized infrastructure so that high quality GIS technology solutions are efficiently delivered to county departments, local governments, and the public. In addition, we also assign and coordinate the addressing of all buildings in the unincorporated areas of Johnson County . Our interactive mapping website, that allows users to locate property by owner name, address, or parcel-id, display layers and aerial photography, measure distances, print maps, identify features, and obtain ownership information, is located at www.jcmaps.org
