Interactive GIS / Mapping Applications

The St. Charles Parish Web GIS Interactive Mapping Application enables the public to view Zoning, Flood Elevation, Environmental and many other land development related data sets for property within St. Charles Parish over the Internet. Within the mapping application, there are three base maps to choose between: Street Map, Aerials and Topo. All data is grouped into the following map categories: Planning & Zoning, Floodzones, Elevation, Transportation, Environmental, Hydrology, Government, Education and Entertainment. Each map category provides different types of geographic data used in land use planning and land development. Users will be able to view these data sets in a flexible, easy-to-use map-like product. This is the Beta Site released to the public which has typical map capabilities such as search for address, determine land use or zoning designation, display map information and print. The next release will allow you to use your Internet browser to search for a property by parcel number then print a report or map of the location and other features as well.
