Troup County began transitioning to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies using ESRI® software in 2009. Legacy AutoCAD maps continue to be maintained for the foreseeable future. New high quality digital orthophotography (aerials) with 6” resolution was acquired in February 2009 - the first image update in fifteen years – along with topography using 2’ contours and planimetric data. The GIS Mapping office was formally established in July 2010.
July 2015, Troup County contracted with the City of LaGrange for GIS services. GIS services include helping Troup County E-911 and emergency responders locate callers, property appraisers accurately maintain fair and equitable property values, school buses and other transportation find efficient routes and utility companies maintain infrastructure records. Many local professionals like Realtors® depend on map data to serve their clients. Other services include address assignment for new developments, homes and businesses and address changes. Online maps are made available through a third party provider, QPublic.
Also, it is the County's responsibility for assigning addresses in the unincorporated county. Address assignment is coordinated with adjacent entities to ensure coordinated addresses. Accurate address assignment and display is critical for all kinds of service delivery and navigation, especially public safety services. Address assignments are guided by the County’s comprehensive Address Assignment and Display Ordinance. The County's Building & Inspections office is responsible for implementing and enforcing the address display.
Popular map products include aerials, parcel maps, roads, address ranges, and specialty zone maps.
