Mapping Services and GIS
MetroGIS (Making Nashville Spatial)
The Mapping Division maintains a complete and accurate set of Davidson County cadastral maps that show the location, size and boundary of every land parcel in the county. The staff in the Mapping Division can provide copies of property maps as well as zoning maps, topographical maps, aerial maps, and digital data.
GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
MetroGIS provides spatial data, mapping solutions and geographic analysis for the City of Nashville and its residents.
GIS is a tool that leverages the spatial components of data by linking tabular information about objects or events with their physical location. This integration makes it possible to answer questions such as how many properties within a floodplain have appraised values that meet a specified criteria. The results of such queries can be displayed in both textual and cartographic forms to help foster better decision making at all levels.
