Note: The Sedgwick County GIS website utilizes pop up windows to display some of the information provided. If you have installed a "Pop Up Killer" on your computer, it will have to be disabled for the website to function properly.
The GIS Interactive map portal is now available.
There is a new and improved "Make Your Own Maps" map portal, which combines the previous "roads" , "elections", and "land & zoning" maps into a single application.
This new application should be intuitive and easy to use, but training is available. Please call 660-9290 to schedule a training session.
The new technology requires Adobe Flash viewer; download here.
Sedgwick County has been working on an addressing project which will be an information resource to many local jurisdictions, including Emergency Communications (911), the Elections Office, the Tag Offices and the cities of Sedgwick County. As part of this effort, the Wichita/Sedgwick County Address Committee has developed addressing standards that ensure logical and consistent assignment of addresses. The document, Addressing in A Regional Context, has taken two years to research and compile. It includes addressing best practices from around the country - modified to fit our local needs - and is an excellent resource for anyone involved in naming streets and assigning address numbers in Sedgwick County.
Sedgwick County Geographic Information Services (SCGIS) provides integrated geographic mapping and analysis services and has become the primary provider of GIS data for the Wichita/Sedgwick County region. SCGIS is a service area within the Division of Information and Operations (DIO).
Data and services are provided to citizens, County staff, municipalities, and public/private organizations. Key services include data development and conversion, mapping, data queries, geo-spatial analysis, application development, and website support.
Web based GIS Access
The SCGIS website provides a portal to key mapping data as services: ready-made printable maps, interactive “make your own” maps, viewable\downloadable images (plat, clerk map, and aerial photography), and downloadable GIS layers in ESRI Shapefile and AutoCAD DXF format.
The most recent addition to the Website is a countywide zip code map developed in conjunction with the United States Postal Service (USPS), accessible through the “Ready to Print Maps” link.
