||Welcome to the Steuben County, IN GIS |
The Steuben County GIS was started in 2001 by undergoing a needs assessment study completed by The Schneider Corporation. In the fall and winter of 2001, an implementation plan was developed. This plan called for the conversion of all of the paper based maps for the Auditor, Assessor, Plan Commission, and Surveyor. This included the tax parcel maps, zoning maps, drainage maps, soils maps, and the associated information. In the spring of 2003 the county obtained black and white photography and began the conversion of the parcel maps to digital maps. Then the drainage layers including the legal ditches, legal tile and watersheds followed, along with the soils data, zoning maps, and Assessor’s land use maps.
Many changes have take place since the first website in 2005. We continue to change and adapt to the needs of those using our site. Layers have been grouped, the ability to search on individual layers has been created as well as map tips, when checked in the upper right corner, for the parcel layer. The ability to pay your real estate taxes was established in 2009 through the parcel report and the search page. Help videos were created and can be found in the information tab in the lower right corner.
In 2012 we are partnering with the State Geographic Informaiton Officer to obtain new 6" aerial photography. New data will be made available from various offices as we coordinate that informaiton to the site. These may include reports and files attached to the reports similar to the section corner reports and the zoning ordinance pages. There will aslo be new data layers.
Feedback from the site is always welcome through the i bubble in the top right corner.
There are numerous data layers available and expandable within the legend on the left of the map. Since the initial 7 data layers were developed, many new layers have been added and new data layers and sources are created each day. As requests for data come to the GIS Office, many of those layers generally end up on the website.
