Mission

The City of Cedar Park Geographic Information Systems (GIS), a division of the Department of Development Services, is an internal activity that supports city departments in the creation, storage, and analysis of a substantial amount of data and information that is used in critical decision making. The GIS division compiles information from various sources including plans, ordinances, and field research into a centralized database for easy access.
