eGIS Version 4.0 rolled out Monday, June 17, 2013.   This new version re-organizes the tools, while maximizing the map area and giving the user control over how layers are displayed on the map and what data is displayed in the results..    To take advantage of the ability to customize the GIS, users must set up an account (at no cost) by registering.  Users always have the option to enter the GIS as a guest without registering.

Note: For best compatibility please follow the recommended settings.

-eGIS works best when using Google Chrome or Mozilla.
-If you are using IE (Internet Explorer), toggle the Compatibility View under the Tools Menu.
-If your receiving the following message in IE, go to the Tools Menu item and toggle the Compatibility View again.

New GIS Layers

Cooperation between County and City Departments has resulted in 2 new layers being added to the County/City eGIS website (    One new layer is the ColumBUS Transit Routes.  This layer shows the 4 existing routes of the ColumBUS Transit System and was compiled by the Columbus Area MPO.   The other layer added is Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities.   This layer shows the location of not only the Peoples Trail, but also Bicycle Lanes and Routes.  Also shown as dotted lines are proposed new routes for bicycles and pedestrians. The City of Columbus – Bartholomew County Planning Department is the source for this layer.   Revisions to these two additional layers can now be made efficiently and can now be quickly available to the public.

Bartholomew County Surveyor would like to welcome all to the Bartholomew County website and the Surveying Department.  As part of our community outreach initiative, below are some fun surveying facts about Bartholomew County.  Enjoy!
