GIS / City Maps

Geographic Information System (GIS Mapping)
The Geographic Information System (GIS) is technology used for the storage, retrieval, analysis, and display of geographic information.  This information includes features or places within the city that have a location/geographic component such as addresses, buildings, parcels, roads, or natural features including wetlands, woodlands and water bodies.

The City of Portage GIS system includes over 20 map overlays that show historical aerial photographs, school districts, voter precinct locations, floodplains and wetlands, future land use and zoning districts. GIS is used in day-to-day operations to assist with tax parcel mapping, emergency vehicle routing, utility system (sanitary sewer, water) maintenance, various permit applications and private development project processing and review.  If further assistance is required, you may contact the Community Development Department at 329-4429.
