Whether you’re using a Garmin GPS or looking for a restaurant on Google Maps, GIS has become integral part of everyday life. To help better accommodate the public and local governments, Mille Lacs County offers a GIS application for free use. As part of a continuous effort to improve their GIS application, Mille Lacs County regularly adds new information and updates existing layers. Some of this available information includes: day care locations, DSL/Cable Vendors, Wireless Vendors, Forfeiture Land Sale and satellite imagery. Trainings on Mille Lacs County GIS could help users utilize the public information by toggling layers on and off, plotting coordinates, measuring distance, drawing on maps and searching based on parcel number, taxpayer information or physical address.
