On October 11, 2006, the
Albemarle County Board of Supervisors
received a demonstration of the County’s new Geographic Information System Website [
will provide public access to the planning and property databases of Albemarle County in one easy to use application. This sophisticated tool will offer incredible access to public information for citizens, realtors, and the development community.
The Supervisors authorized the release of GIS Web to the general public before the end of 2006

Citizens will have the ability to interact with and display on maps a multitude of data such as school districts, zoning types, conservation easements, aerial photos, and watershed boundaries. In addition,
citizens will be able to look-up public zoning notice signs
and locations and
perform data queries of recent property sales
. The results, including maps and even mailing labels of property owners, can be printed directly from GIS Web. In November, the County plans to integrate the
development tracking and application system
into GIS Web too.
