Division Functions

The GIS Department is responsible for creating, maintaining, analyzing, and distributing the Parish's geographic base data. The primary function of the Department is to support Parish operations. We are also responsible for administering GIS-related data requests.

Examples of GIS Data

Geographic information systems (GISs) are essentially computer applications that allow an organization to relate all of its data to points, lines, or areas upon the earth. Examples of GIS data include:

  • Parcels
  • Street centerlines
  • Surface water
  • Elevations (contours)
  • Aerial imagery

The Caddo Parish Public Works Department does not provide GIS Data to the Public. For Parish GIS shapefiles or data requests, please contact the Northwest Council of Government (NLCOG) at 318-226-6724 or the Caddo Assessor's Office (318) 226-6711.
