Cobb County Government

The mission of Cobb County's Geographic Information System (GIS) is to create, operate, and maintain an efficient, cost-effective geographic information system through the use of specialized computer, mapping and digital aerial photography technologies in support of the Board of Commissioners, elected officials, and county departments.

Cobb's GIS will collaborate with other government and non-government entities to provide responsive and useful location-based services to customers.
