The Morgan County GIS Department is responsible for the creation and maintenance of all GIS data within the county, except for parcel (cadastral) data. This includes, but not limited to: E-911 Communications, Office of Emergency Services, Planning and Addressing. We are responsible for updating the Morgan County portion of the State of WV Mapping and Addressing Website with all current feature class data as required by State Code. We are also in charge of street sign maintenance on any municipal non-state maintained road.
This office provides new addresses and address verification letters. The GIS Department is also responsible for creation of new roads and road name approvals through the County Commission.
Our goal is to provide citizens, businesses, and government by developing, maintaining, and providing the most current, accurate geographical data in the county.
