The City of Grants Pass has debuted a new GIS mapping program that is visually appealing, robust, and above all–user-friendly!
While we haven’t adopted the slogan, “There’s a map for that” yet, we think people will be able to find just about anything they could want.
- Do you want to know where to park for free when you go downtown? There’s a map for that.
- Do you want to know whether your favorite park is a city or county park? There’s a map for that.
- Do you want to take a walking tour and look at some of our public art? There’s a map for that.
The best aspect of this new program is that you can tailor it to your needs without having to select from a list of previously built maps. One simply toggles a layer that displays the information one wants, and it appears; toggle it off, and it disappears.
The same map that will display parks will also display tax lots, council wards, utility locations, school district boundaries, locations of fire hydrants, bus routes, public parking lots, locations of cellular towers, and numerous other items. One can even measure the distance between locations on the map.
For those who have utilized our former GIS options, you’ll find this new version much easier to use. And for those who haven’t used our GIS option yet, you might just find yourself wandering down a rabbit hole of endless possibilities.
If you have questions or suggestions, we'd love to hear from you at GIS@grantspassoregon.gov
