Rankin County GIS Tool

Rankin County and the Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (CMPDD) have a great geographical information system (GIS).

The GIS tool is available at

PRV also has a Reservoir centric GIS tool at

The interactive GIS mapping tool lets you select various layers to see how the selected layers apply to specific property.  There are several different layers including parcels, which shows general property lines and property ownership (note this is presumably based on older tax information and not a survey), political districts, school zones, regulatory districts, transportation and utility assets, and a plethora of other geographical data affecting the Reservoir and Rankin County.

Here is a screenshot of the "Reservoir Community District", which looks to be the same thing as the Reservoir Overlay District, a county zoning regulation associated with land near the Rez but not in Flowood city limits.

You can select any of the layers and manipulate the zoom to obtain the specific data in which you're interested.

This is a great tool that we'll highlight further in the future.
