Mapping & GIS

The Economic Development + Planning Department maintains a geographic information system (GIS) containing data both created by the City (such as the location of city water and sewer infrastructure), as well as information we obtain from other sources (such as parcel information obtained from the Kenai Peninsula Borough). The information stored in a GIS is used daily to support local decision-making and provide useful information to the public.

To look up basic information about a parcel of land, such as ownership records, transfers, plats, or assessment/valuation information, visit the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s parcel viewer

WHAT IS GIS?GIS is a powerful computer mapping tool. Instead of a conventional map, where all information is on one piece of paper, GIS allows layers of information to be stored separately and added as needed. The City of Soldotna stores information about utilities, roads, parcels, streams and rivers, parks, the airport, and other information in our GIS.
