The Berkeley County GIS Consortium consists of Berkeley County, Berkeley County Water and Sanitation, Berkeley Electric Cooperative, Berkeley County Soil and Water Conservation District, Berkeley County School District, Home Telephone Company Inc., the City of Goose Creek, the City of Hanahan, the Town of Moncks Corner, and Santee Cooper. They combined to fund a comprehensive Berkeley County GIS department that became functional in April of 1994.
All consortium members have access to data and GIS products, such as the street atlas. They maintain their own data and exchange updated information as changes occur. This helps maintain system cost efficiencies and eliminate duplication of data.
Berkeley County Geographic Information System (GIS) has served as a model for GIS development for the State of South Carolina and is the primary database repository and administrative site for Berkeley County GIS data. The GIS department maintains and updates more than 500 digital data layers such as zoning, political boundaries, and street centerlines. Berkeley County Geographic Information System (GIS) also provides custom GIS-based map development, applications development, data development, custom cartography, and GIS training.
Digital and hard copy map requests by County staff, Consortium members, and the general public are provided for as well. One of our most popular mapping products is our full color Berkeley County Street Atlas. This atlas was created by the GIS department in 1997 and is updated on an annual basis. The GIS department supplies technical assistance to consortium members for hardware and software issues.
- Continue the acquisition and development of new and useful data and GIS layers.
- Promote and assist other County departments with potential GIS access and usage.
- Continuously update existing GIS layers such as property parcels and zoning as changes occur.
- Serve as the lead agency for a County-wide data clearinghouse.
- Establish and promote digital data development standards for geographic information.
