While the true power of GIS lies in its usefulness as a tool for managing spatial data, analyzing it, and answering spatial questions, the technology can also be used to prepare an unlimited assortment of hardcopy maps. In fact, staff of Cayuga County take advantage of GIS data, software, and hardware to create new hardcopy maps every day.
A vast array of maps created by the County are stored digitally and may be printed on demand in a variety of sizes, formats, and colors. If you are looking for a map of any type covering any area of Cayuga County, please call the Department of Planning and Economic Development to inquire if one that meets your needs is available. The staff would be happy to provide instructions on how to order maps that are currently available, or to discuss the possibility and cost of preparing a new map if that is feasible.
