The GIS Mapping Section provides the parcels and street centerlines that serve as a foundation for mapping for all other departments within the City. GIS Mapping section coordinates with all city departments along with other agencies such as Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District, Fresno Irrigation District, City of Clovis, Fresno Council of Governments, Fresno County Local Agency Formation Commission and CalTrans. The GIS Division parcels differ from the Assessor Record Maps maintained by the Fresno County Assessor's Office in the following ways:
GIS Division parcels seek to describe physical reality and proposals. For instance, the maps may show each lot in a mobile home park, in which the entire park is one legal parcel. In cases like this, each lot has the entire park's tax code.
GIS Division parcels show "seamless" parcels. That is, they have been stretched or "rubber sheeted" where necessary to ensure there are no gaps or slivers between subdivisions and sections. These anomalies occur when joining coordinate geometry (COGO) drawings used in parcel and subdivision legal descriptions. The intent is to accurately display parcel and street relationships with minimal sacrifice of dimensional accuracy. The resulting maps are good for planning, overlaying facilities (sewer, gas, water, etc), and seeing the relationships between parcels.
