Floyd County began using GIS in 2006 when they purchased 2 ArcView 9.2 (ESRI Software)Licenses. Mainly used by the Engineering and Planners Office’s GIS was quickly becoming a necessity for both offices. In 2007 GIS was used to update parcels to the “new” parcel coding system that the State of Indiana mandated. In 2008 GIS was used to maintain parcels (along with updating the paper maps) of land splits and transfers. In 2010, GIS was the only system used to update parcel transfers and splits, paper maps were no longer being updated. In 2012 Floyd County entered into an agreement with 39 Degrees North and started providing GIS information online.
