Welcome to Erie County Planning


Geographic information system (GIS) is an information system used to input, store, retrieve, modify, analyze, and output geospatial or geographically referenced information.  Layers of information can be created for specific land areas in order to enable a comprehensive analysis of the impacts of changes in land use and/or to measure the suitability of particular locations for new land uses.  The Planning Department participates actively with other Erie County departments and with local, state, and federal agencies in exchanges of such information.

The planning department maintains an extensive collection of statistical and mapped geographic information, much of which is available both in paper and electronic (digital) formats.
