Nampa GIS Logo Geographic Information System

The City of Nampa's mapping needs are addressed by the Geographic Information System (GIS) staff, which is structured under the Engineering Division.


Nampa's GIS developed in a manner similar to many GIS departments; it evolved from an engineering technician position in the 1990's to a GIS section of the Engineering Division presently. Geographical data maintenance has matured from using simple AutoCAD utility and zoning maps, to converting the CAD files to GIS format, to collecting GIS data with GPS units, to a full-fledged city-wide GIS involving multiple departments utilizing hundreds of data layers.
