GIS is an internet-based computer application that makes it possible for you to explore Martin County in a geospatial environment. GIS creates maps that include the features you select properties and display maps and information on your computer screen. GIS allows you to choose from various layers of map data maintained on the County's Geographic Information System (GIS) as you research specific land parcel information in Martin County. The features of GIS allow you to locate a parcel of land by searching for the owner's name, the parcel number, or the parcels street address. You can then print a copy of the map and parcel information for your records. GIS can also display Fire or Rescue Districts for properties, whether or not a property is located in the floodplain, or if it is in the city limits of a municipality.
