Bonner County – Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Welcome to the Bonner County Geographic Information Systems (GIS) site. GIS is the combination of computer hardware, software, and spatial and tabular data. GIS enables decision-makers and information-seekers to store, manage, retrieve, view, analyze, and distribute large amounts of information efficiently.
The main objective of the Bonner County GIS Team is to provide centralized, accurate and current geographic data to county departments, other government agencies, and the public. Geographic data and maps can be downloaded from this site and/or from other specific county websites as they become available.
