Services & Projects
Official Zoning / Ordinance Maps
GMRC has access to tax parcel data for each of our thirteen counties that enable us to provide up to date Official Zoning and Boundary maps to our municipalities. Annexations and re-zonings can be updated on an annual basis or as the City makes changes to their official maps.
Using sub-foot accuracy global positioning system (GPS), we can conduct a full inventory within City maintained cemeteries, providing information needed to locate or sell burial plots. Each visible headstone is gps’d, all information is recorded from the headstone and a digital photo is taken. Headstone and gravesite condition are also recorded. Unmarked graves can also be marked with a pin flag for future reference.
US Census Bureau Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS) Program
Under contract with Georgia Department of Community Affairs, GMRC provides assistance with reporting annexations and boundary changes to the Census Bureau for our member governments.
Utility Infrastructure Mapping
Water, Sewer, Storm water and Gas utility features can be digitally mapped using our sub-foot accuracy global positioning system (GPS). We have the capability to add any attribute to features such as fire hydrants, manholes, water meters and distribution lines.
Moving Ahead towards Progress in the 21st Century (MAP 21) Project
The GDOT Office of Transportation Data (OTD) is charged with specific database validation requirements associated with GIS‐based road centerline attribution mandated by the federally‐enacted surface transportation act, MAP‐21. The Georgia Association of Regional Commissions signed an agreement with UGA’s Information Technology and Outreach (ITOS) division, to perform the MAP-21 work required in each regional commission area.
Verification processes will be performed on five key data elements pertaining to roads across the region. Those are: ownership, operation, number of lanes, surface type, and median. Information on traffic control devices where local roads meet highways and all road names will be submitted for each county in the GMRC region.
