GIS and Mapping
A Geographic Information System (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GIS allows one to view, understand, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts. GIS helps answer questions and solve problems by looking at data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
The Town of Mount Pleasant has a new GIS site that includes zoning information, recommended land use, height, flood zone and aerial imagery. The new site works on computers, tablets and smart phones. You can search by Tax Map Number or address. If you need assistance, an overview of the new GIS website is available.
Special maps can be requested online through a freedom of information request. The cost will be dependent on the complexity of the map requested. Please contact us for details.
Official requests for zoning, height, or Future Land Use determinations can be submitted online or by contacting the Department of Planning, Land Use, and Neighborhoods.
Official flood zone maps and determinations can also be requested online. More information can be found on the Town's Flood Protection webpage or by contacting the Building Inspections Division.
