The Pearl River County GIS Department was created to direct the development of the county's Enterprise GIS system bringing efficiency and effectiveness to county mapping functions and databases. It is tasked with developing, maintaining, coordinating, and distributing GIS data and technology to Pearl River County departments, other agencies, and residents.
Pearl River County uses this information for planning and development, land records, transportation planning, elections administration, public safety, economic development, and emergency management, to name only a few applications. Our GIS data is also integrated into other county systems such as our road maintenance work requests, building permitting, code enforcement, and animal/litter control reporting. A standardized address system is in place and integrates with multiple county business applications including and most importantly E911 dispatch.
