Mecklenburg County GIS hosts an Open Data Portal called Open Mapping in which the public can browse for and download GIS Mapping layers called shapefiles (zipped) for personal use.
Please note: Shapefiles are comprised of multiple files. The DBF file of a shapefile can be loaded into excel and viewed if map data viewing capabilities are not needed. To view the downloaded data as spatially mapped, you must have access to GIS software locally on your PC.
Please Read this Special Notice: All other requests for GIS data that cannot be downloaded from our Open Mapping Website must be made in writing, either in person or by mail. Use this data request form and provide the following information: name, phone number, email, and mark the desired datasets. Please complete, print, and attach form to your hard drive upon delivery. Please allow 1-2 business days for the data to be available. If you mail it in, please include return postage.
The Integrated Data Store (IDS) is a collection of databases from various administrative systems that are stored and accessed from one location. The IDS currently contains data from The Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement and the County Sheriff’s Department. Additional datasets from other departments will also be incorporated into the IDS over time.
Data contained in the IDS is updated on a daily/weekly/monthly basis and provides you with a "snapshot" of the activity recorded on the above specified host systems.
You will access the data through a standard web-based reporting system. If you have a fairly standard set of requirements, the IDS system can provide you with groups of pre-defined reports that are accessed by an Internet browser.
Example Reports consist of: Building Permit Queries and Reports, Certificate of Occupancy Query and Report, and Sheriff’s Arrest Query and Report.
