GIS – Geographic Information Systems

It’s often said that at least 80% of all data has a geographic component. Everything that has happened, or will happen, does so in a place. Accurately recording, maintaining, and analyzing the “information of place” is at the center of the Geographic Information System (GIS) Division of the Marshall County Office of Information Technology. The GIS Division works with the many governmental units within Marshall County to leverage GIS data to enhance decision making, reduce costs, and increase responsiveness.

The GIS Division also works closely with the incorporated cities and utility districts within the county to collect and manage their spatial assets and information.

Floodplain Management

Among all of the natural disasters to which our county is susceptible, flooding has proven to be the most costly. While we can’t control the weather, we can limit the potential for loss caused by flooding through effective floodplain management.

As a participating community in the National Flood Insurance Program, Marshall County is required by 44 CFR § 59.22 and § 60.3 to regulate and permit development within the portion of the floodplain designated as the Special Flood Hazard Area, or SFHA.

The simple way to determine whether or not a project location falls within the SFHA, and is therefore subject to floodplain regulations, is by searching for the location on the FEMA Flood Map Service Center ( If you prefer, you may also visit our office and we can help you to make a floodplain determination.

Permit Process

If it is determined that your project location is within the SFHA, a floodplain permit from both the Commonwealth of Kentucky, as well from Marshall County will be required. For details on obtaining a floodplain development permit from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, please visit the Division of Water’s webpage at Once a permit has been obtained from the Commonwealth, please contact our office for your local Marshall County permit.

If you have any further questions, or need to obtain additional information on a floodplain permit, please contact our offices.
