The Engineering Department of Hardin County is located on the second floor of the Historic Courthouse, 100 Public Square in downtown Elizabethtown. All Hardin County GIS services are the responsibility of the Hardin County Engineering Department. The Engineering Department provides GIS guidance, training, and technical support for all Hardin County departments. ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institue) describes GIS as:

A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware,
software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and
displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.
GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and
visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns,
<br>and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.
A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking
at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information
system framework (www.esri.com, n.d.).

The Hardin County Engineering Department maintains data on current road projects, future commercial and residential developments, stormwater drainage and runoff, FEMA floodplain mapping, contour elevation data for the entire county, LiDAR point cloud for the entire county, dead animal removal, etc. The Engineering Department also creates, develops, and analyzes data for Hardin County E911, Hardin County EMS, Hardin County Road Department, and local engineering and consulting firms.
