ABOUT GIS AND MAPPING SERVICES

Our main enterprise GIS functions at the MPC are contained with the  Community Planning and Design Department. We manage all enterprise-related GIS data, as well as design, build, and maintain custom GIS databases and applications for our customers.

We use industry-standard GIS software from Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), for our data maintenance, map-making, spatial data storage and delivery of our data to the Internet. You can download some base GIS data in shapefile format or access our latest Internet mapping application by using the links in the menu column. We work closely with City and Parish departments, surrounding municipalities and state agencies on projects that enhance our ability to deliver timely, accurate GIS information to citizens.
