The Technical Services Counter, (865) 215-2103, is located in Suite 462 of the City County Building, with hours from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. The counter maintains the official ward maps, subdivision plats, and other records to support the Engineering Department. The products for sale are nominally priced to offset production costs. The Geographic Information System (GIS) covers the entire county and is maintained by an independent agency called KGIS, funded jointly by the City of Knoxville, Knox County, and the Knoxville Utilities Board.

The current price list is maintained at the Technical Services Counter, along with examples of these products. The counter staff is very helpful in assisting homeowners or developers in choosing the best product for the purpose. Survey control points, formerly published in manual form for use by surveyors, are now available at an interactive website established jointly by KGIS and the Civil Engineering Division.

Maps, aerial photographs, historical records, and other data may also be obtained from KGIS and MPC at a reasonable cost:

  • KGIS is the lead agency for developing and maintaining the GIS database on a continuing basis for the entire county. KGIS can create a wide variety of specialized maps and aerial photographs.
