Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are essentially the computer applications that allow an organization to relate all of its data to points, lines or areas upon the earth. Examples of GIS data include parcels, street centerlines, surface water, elevations (contours), and aerial imagery.

The County of Yancey acquires, develops, maintains and uses GIS data in support of its internal business functions and the public services it provides. The GIS data which Yancey County distributes and to which it provides access may not be suitable for other purposes or uses. It is the requestor's responsibility to verify any information derived from the GIS data before making any decisions or taking any actions based on the information.
