Geographic Information System (GIS)

The Village Geographic Information System (GIS) is a web-based application developed and hosted by consulting firm Ruekert/Mielke.  The Engineering Division is responsible for required maintenance to upload and program some of the desired enhancements such as parcel updates received from Kane and McHenry Counties, additional utility identification and attributes, zoning layer enhancements, re-adjusting utility flow arrows, or other technical issues that may potentially arise throughout the year. As a continuation of the GIS building effort, additional data such as surveyed utility locations is added to the GIS database on a frequent basis. 

The Village GIS public portal can be accessed here:


Kane and McHenry Counties also have public GIS portals and they can be accessed here:
