    GIS Maps

    The Town of Eden's Geographical Information Maps ("GIS") has been created to offer public access to the many layers available in the Town of Eden's Geographic Information System ("GIS").

    GIS Maps

    Through this dynamic system, information such as property parcels, roads, pond locations, sewer and water line locations, and environmental features (wetlands, open space, etc.) can provide maps that can be displayed, queried and printed.

    These intuitive power of maps reveal trends, patterns, and answers that are not as easily detected in other data presentation formats. GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, make informed decisions and visualize data in ways simply not possible in the rows and columns of a spreadsheet. Beautiful and interesting maps provide better decision making tools and analysis. Thus making a difference in the decisions we make about our town! Please note --- when you click on the link to the GIS Maps below you will be leaving the Main Town of Eden's Website and visiting a subset of their website.
