Sumter Unveils New Mapping Services

Sumter, SC (Nov. 19, 2019) – Using the latest in Geographic Information Services (GIS) Technology, the Sumter City-County Planning Department has released a new public mapping service for the community.

The update organizes property information, floodplain maps, and zoning data in one user- friendly location. The maps are also accessible by mobile devices.
