About GIS

Sedgwick County Geographic Information Services (SCGIS) provides integrated geographic mapping and analysis services and has become the primary provider of GIS data for the Wichita/Sedgwick County region. SCGIS is a service area within the Division of Information and Operations (DIO). Data and services are provided to citizens, County staff, municipalities, and public/private organizations. Key services include data development and conversion, mapping, data queries, geo-spatial analysis, application development, and website support.

Web based GIS Access

The SCGIS website provides a portal to key mapping data as services: ready-made printable maps, interactive “make your own” maps, viewable\downloadable images (plat, clerk map, and aerial photography), and downloadable GIS layers in ESRI Shapefile and AutoCAD DXF format. The most recent addition to the Website is a countywide zip code map developed in conjunction with the United States Postal Service (USPS), accessible through the “Printable Maps” link.

Mapping Services to Citizens

The SCGIS team also provides custom mapping\analysis services for maps not available on the website. Contact the GIS office at 316.660.9290 to place requests. Services are provided as time permits.

Mapping Internal Services

GIS applications serve an integral role in several County Departments, including the Appraiser’s Dept., the County Treasurer’s Dept., the Fire Dept., 911, the Emergency Operations Center, and the Sheriff’s Dept. Currently, DIO-GIS is integrating geocoding functionality with database administration to provide long-term enhancements to Sedgwick County's ability to respond to public safety emergencies.
