Mormon Church shares shapefiles with county
October 15th, 2010 by Susan Smith
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) will now provide Davis County, Utah, with information on the properties the church owns in the county. It will then be stored in the county’s GIS database to help with sheltering evacuees during disasters, processing disaster claims and applying for public assistance.
The church agreed to provide the county the shape files for its parcels. County officials may use this data to contact church-owned facilities that may be used as shelters during emergencies.
