Geographic Information Systems
Maps & GIS
Maps and geographic (spatial) information is very important to most operations in the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning (DRP). The department was an early adopter of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and uses it on a daily basis to support planning staff and countywide efforts. The DRP has created applications for viewing and investigating zoning, land use policy, subdivision activity, aerial imagery, and many other features pertaining to land use within the unincorporated communities of Los Angeles County. These applications also allow the user to manipulate the maps in various ways and save map extents to Portable Data Format (PDF), which can then be printed.
