GIS Application Options

Spatial Services provides several levels of GIS access for the Pierce County business community: 

  • Free options exist like the GIS Data Portal and PublicGIS where you can download data for use in your own in-house applications, or view publicly-provided datasets in a simple user interface.  
  • CountyViewWeb (CVWeb) is available for businesses who need data access in a user-friendly application that includes slightly more advanced functionality along with custom print templates for your business.
  • CountyViewPro (CVPro) is for advanced users who have a GIS certificate or are willing to complete several days of advanced training, and need the full functionality of a mature GIS application.  

The table below describes the functionality available in each option to help you determine which might best serve your needs.   

CVWeb and CVPro both require an annual license fee per person.  If you are interested in more information, use the Contact Us link below.
