Geographic Information Systems
The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Division is responsible for managing the Centralized Addressing System, water / wastewater / storm utilities, roadways, lots / parcels, land use, current zoning, flood zone data, and many more features. The GIS Division supports 28 departments and divisions internally and also maintains a strong intergovernmental coordination effort with numerous local, state and federal agencies to provide enterprise GIS support such as the Sheriff's Office and 911 dispatch, Emergency Management and the School Board.
What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing,
and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.
A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework.
Population Estimation Calculator
We have added the ability to calculate estimated population based on an area that you draw. This tool is located under the "Measure" tool.
Instructions for Calculating Population Estimates Using the Interactive Maps:
- 1) Click this link: http://gis.citrusbocc.com/interactive-maps.html and choose a map (like the General Parcel Map)
- 2) Zoom down to the area you want
- 3) Click the “Measure” tool (rule with the question mark), then select “Population by Area” from the drop down menu
- 4) Click a starting point on the map where want to start from, then continue clicking points to draw the area, then double-click to stop drawing and calculate. (Be patient, it takes around 15-20 seconds)
Code Compliance Cases
We have added the ability to locate Code Compliance Cases. You can now view current open / unresolved cases, as well as, historical cases. There are two (2) ways to locate this information. One way is to view a map with the Open / Unresolved cases, the other is to view the cases by using the Address Lookup tool.
Click this link: http://gis.citrusbocc.com/open-code-compliance.html to view the map, or use the menu by clicking "INTERACTIVE DATA" --> "Current Visual Data" --> "Code Complaints".
Perform an address lookup and find all of the information we know about a property, including, the commissioner's district (and name of the commissioner) your address is located in, street ownership and road condition ratings, the elementary, middle and high schools your address is zoned for, setbacks, utilities, distance to the nearest hydrant, emergency management and evacuation, topographical, census and demographic data, land use and zoning, building permit history, use application history, Code Compliance / Complaint history and links to the Property Appraiser, Tax Collector and the School Board.
We have added the ability to calculate approximate slope based on the contour data we have. Any interactive map with the contour layer(s) available will have the added "Calculate Slope" tool. This tool is located under the "Measure" tool. Also, the Address Lookup will show the calculated maximum slope for the parcel / lot you choose.
Instructions for Getting Slope Using the Address Lookup:
- 1) Click this link: http://gis.citrusbocc.com/address-lookup.html
- 2) Start typing in an address, then click the address from the drop down list
- 3) After the data loads, scroll midway down the page to a section titled “ELEVATION / SLOPE INFORMATION (APPROXIMATE)”, it takes about 20 seconds to a minute to complete
- 4) Please note that this calculated slope information is the HIGHEST/GREATEST slope based on the contours for the property in question
Instructions for Getting Slope Using the Interactive Maps:
- 1) Click this link: http://gis.citrusbocc.com/interactive-maps.html and choose a map that has contours (like the General Parcel Map)
- 2) Zoom down to the area you want
- 3) Turn on the 1 foot contours (or 2ft. or 5ft.)
- 4) Click the “Measure” tool (rule with the question mark), then select “Calculate Slope” from the drop down menu
- 5) Click a starting point on the map near the contour line you want to start from, then double-click the ending point near the contour line you want to end with (for instance, start at 98 feet, end on 121 feet)
Sea Level Rise Model
We have added a new page to maintain time-driven interactive maps created from various models. The first model we have published is the potential sea rise level map.
We have added the ability for anyone to upload your favorite photos from around Citrus County to our system. It's easy!
Go to our Interactive Maps, choose a map, such as the "General Parcel Map", by clicking on it.
When the map loads, you will see a camera icon on the top-right of the toolbar (above the map) . Click this icon
and follow the instructions.
** Please note: All uploads will be reviewed prior to publishing. Photos and documents that have been uploaded and published become publicly viewable. **
Sinkhole / Subsidence Map
The Florida Geological Survey maintains data related to sinkholes and subsidence issues. The data may now be viewed on an interactive web map at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Map Direct website, located at http://ca.dep.state.fl.us/mapdirect/?focus=fgssinkholes.
Perform an address lookup and find all of the information we know about a property, including, the commissioner's district (and name of the commissioner) your address is located in, street ownership and road condition ratings, the elementary, middle and high schools your address is zoned for, setbacks, utilities, distance to the nearest hydrant, emergency management and evacuation, topographical, census and demographic data, land use and zoning, building permit history, use application history and links to the Property Appraiser, Tax Collector and the School Board.
Traffic Count Stations
We have added an interactive map that contains both the Citrus County traffic count stations and the Florida Department of Transportation traffic count stations. Click the button below to see it in action!
Census Designated Places - 2010 Data
A census designated place (CDP) is a concentration of population
identified by the United States Census Bureau for statistical purposes.
CDPs are delineated for each decennial census as the statistical counterparts of
incorporated places, such as cities, towns, and villages.
