GIS, Mapping & Data Services
Geographic Information Systems
In 2013 the Village joined the GIS Consortium, an organization of Chicago-area communities unified by a common goal: to share resources, information, staffing, and technology so that municipalities can optimize the value of geographic information systems (GIS).
What Is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends. GIS connects a community database to a geographic location, which allows for the efficient management, analysis and visualization of community information.
How GIS Helps the Village and YouGIS is a key component of a number of Village operations because of its ability to visualize data and connect multiple data sources. For example, GIS can help the Village analyze data and prepare maps for the Capital Improvement Plan.
The Village and GIS Consortium have also integrated GIS into this website to make it available for resident and business use. Learn more about what resources you can access below.
Interactive Village Map (MapOffice™)
MapOffice™ differs from commercial mapping sites, such as Google™ maps or MapQuest™, because it is an interactive GIS application that provides property information and mapping tasks to the general public, not simply a map. The primary function of MapOffice™ is to enable the public to perform property searches, either by address or Property Identification Number (PIN), and answer questions about a specific property.

Know Your Neighborhood (i.e. Community Portal)While MapOffice focuses on more on single properties, Know Your Neighborhood (also known as Community Portal) allows a more holistic view of the Village by letting users get information about their property as well as use interactive maps to see information about whole areas. Users can simply search an address and get valuable information such as its zoning, which school districts serve it and who its elected officials are in Congress and the Illinois General Assembly. Additionally, through interactive maps, users can be various important maps such as Flood Plain information, subdivisions and other geographically-based information.
