Addresses

The GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Department assigns, updates, and verifies all addresses in the County that fall outside of the city limits of Grovetown and Harlem. Addresses are assigned and should be posted according to a standard set of rules to help make sure you can be found as quickly as possible in a time of need.

  • Driveway access determines your address
  • Posted numbers must be visible from both directions on the road with no weeds or other items blocking their view
  • Posted numbers should be mounted on pole or mailbox on either side of a driveway entrance
  • Reflective numbers are helpful for night visibility, but are not required
  • The size of number and where you post your number is affected by the type of building

Have a question? Please email us or give us a call at (706) 868-3421.


Road Names

Road names are as vital as address numbers for emergency response. The GIS Department also approves and coordinates the naming of all public and private roads in the County that fall outside the city limits of Grovetown and Harlem.  Road names are reviewed and approved according to a standard set of rules to help make sure you can be found as quickly as possible in a time of need.

  • Roads that provide access to three or more structures should be assigned a name whether it is publicly or privately owned
  • No two roads should have the same name or names that are too similar sounding
  • Road names should not be too difficult to spell or too difficult to pronounce

Have a question or a road that needs a name? Please email us or give us a call at (706) 868-3421.


GPS (Global Positioning Service) Program

The GIS Department coordinates the County GPS Program to keep track of the location of County owned utilities, like sewer and storm manholes, fire hydrants, and so much more.  Our program is different from others around us because, in 2015, our Reference Station became a part of Trimble's VRS NowTM Network.

  • We operate a Trimble NetR9 CORS (Continuously Operating Reference Station)
  • Data corrections provided
    • Free Single-Base real time corrections provided via IP for GNSS data
    • Subscription based real time corrections provided through the Trimble VRS NowTM Network
    • Free CORS differential correction after data has been collected in the field
  • Data correction formats
    • CMR+
    • RTCM v2.3 and DGPS
    • RTCM v3.0
  • Reference Station Connection Request Form

Have a question or need permissions for corrections? Please email us or give us a call at (706) 868-3421.

The GIS Department also provides many other services to County departments and the public in addition to assigning addresses and road names and conducting GPS work.

  • Our data and programs help make sure other County departments are serving our community to the best of their ability
  • Our software can print custom maps as needed for County employees and members of our community
  • Our web GIS program allows us to build interactive map viewers for you to view and research information important to you
