How do I request a GIS map?
you need a custom map, the DCRPC has the ability to create one
for a fee. The DCRPC staff
maintains over 100 GIS layers for the Delaware County.
The available GIS data was created by DCRPC, or provided by

DCRPC GIS Review:
DCRPC developed the initial Geographic Information System in 1990 to
conduct a county-wide master plan. The
system, developed as a specific application for the land use plan, was
used to compile and manage the social and physical environmental data
(almost 60 layers). Since then, the system has been expanded to a
departmental GIS for reviewing new development projects such as
subdivision and rezoning proposals and for creating township
comprehensive plans. Since
1998, the system has been used in monthly DCRPC meetings, township
comprehensive plan meetings, and other public presentations.
1999, the DCRPC received an
ESRI Local Government Start-up grant, which provided a variety of
software such as ArcInfo, MapObjects, MapObjects IMS, and ArcView to
help implement GIS in the RPC. The
grant also helped the DCRPC upgrade the departmental GIS to an
Enterprise GIS by developing intranet GIS applications using MapObjects
2.0, MapObjects IMS 2.0, and ArcExplorer provided by ESRI.
2003, after a meeting with
2004, the DCRPC continued enhancing and improving the content of its
website to make sure that the information (especially the township
zoning code, zoning map, township comprehensive plan maps and documents,
and Demographic Package and Development Trends) are shared with the
public. All of this
information was created with the help of our GIS application.
The staff also uses GIS to aid in preparing township
comprehensive land use plans, for monthly RPC meetings, and other
special projects. The GIS
staff continues to provide high-quality, customized GIS mapping for
the staff as well as the public. Two

DCRPC also used GIS as a backbone to contribute to the Delaware County
Sewer Master Plan, not only by compiling GIS layers for mapping, but
also by using GIS Spatial Analysis technology to analyze build-out
scenarios and priority areas for future sewer service.
The GIS staff shared its experience in this project with other
GIS professionals in 2003 Ohio GIS Conference (9/25/2003), and presented this project
at the 2004 ESRI
International GIS User Conference (8/2004). See the news
page for more award information.
