Sussex County has released a beta sample of its new land-use mapping platform, according to a report from Delaware 105.9.

“You’ll still be able to search by address, by name, by tax ID. You’ll still be able to see your school district, your fire districts. But, it will all be built on a GIS platform, which is the wave of the future,” County Administrator Todd Lawson told the radio station. “It’s not the wave of the future, it’s the wave of ‘now.'”

Constituents will no longer need to shuffle through a vicious link cycle in order to access the land use information they’re searching for.

The new GIS tool will officially launch in conjunction with the retirement of the old site in July. For now, take a look at the sparkling new beta.
