GIS / County Maps


  GIS GlobeGIS GlobeWelcome to Renville County GIS!

Geographic Information Systems use spatial locations (physical locations) to gather, manage, and analyze data related to that location. This data is organized into layers of information to be compared with other data, spot relationships or put into maps for viewing.

Renville County utilizes ESRI’s suite of GIS software and online tools to manage the increasing amount of spatial data that is required. Many county workers use this data as part of their jobs and its Renville County citizens are now relying on and using from the comfort of their homes.

A dedicated GIS HUB site with all county GIS online applications with map and public data downloads, an increasing number of internal GIS solutions for county government and a ‘one stop shop’ to interact with all public data layer we continue to showcase Renville County through this technology.

Renville County GIS is proud to partner with ProWest & Associates for GIS applications!
