GIS Website



The GIS department maintains all geospatial data for Shenandoah County, Virginia. This data is available for distribution and any requests must be made to Chris Way (contact above). There is a fee associated with data distribution. A fee schedule and list of available data layers will be provided upon request.


We can also supply hard copy maps for a fee. These maps can be printed on a laser jet printer (up to 11×17) or plotted for larger sizes.


Custom work requests will be evaluated on a case by case basis and will usually depend on the current department workload. This work requires an hourly rate.
