Locating an Address Using Accela GIS

Addresses can be located using Accela GIS. Accela GIS is an interface that works in conjunction with Civic Platform to provide automated maps from a central database and give staff direct access to view geographic representations of all land-use, zoning, and infrastructure information associated with a parcel, permit, inspection, or plan.

If your agency uses Accela GIS, you can use the map viewer to locate an address and any related applications. See the Accela GIS User Guide for more information about using Accela GIS.
