Welcome to the Adams County GIS map viewer.
The Adams County GIS is an interactive map viewer that allows users to see maps of Adams County, Illinois showing, property lines, addresses, photography, streets, historical information and more. This is a very user friendly program designed for the novice user.
Note: Pop-ups! This website uses pop-ups to display some of the map information. Adams County recommends you disable your pop-up blocker or add it as a trusted site. You may have more than one pop up blocker installed on your system. If you have a Google or Yahoo tool bar installed, it may also have blockers. If you find our site just "hangs" at times, close your Google or Yahoo toolbars.

NEW IP ADDRESS FOR MAP SERVICES - We have updated our hardware and IP address. If you map to the ArcIMS Map Service through ArcGIS Desktop our new IP Address is 188.8.131.52. Please be sure to update that address in ArcGIS.
INTERACT WITH GOOGLE EARTH - We have added a button to allow you to transfer data from our web site to Google Earth. Currently the Mississippi River, Centerline and addresses are available to transfer to Google Earth (other layers will be available soon). Simply zoom to the area of interest, click the Google Earth Button (to the left of the toolboxes) and follow the directions. This will export the data to the kml file and will open Google Earth for viewing. Try using the address layer and choose address wherever it asks for a field name (you can leave the other boxes blank). When you click on an address in Google Earth, you can get directions to or from the selected address.
