Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan
The Carver County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a long-term, strategic planning tool for improving the health of Carver County.

The purpose of the CHA is to learn about the health of our community and identify areas for improvement. More information is available on the CHA and CHIP pages.
Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a mapping technology that has intelligent data behind features (roads, parcels, crime incidents, buildings) on a map. GIS applications allow user to interact with the map and data through tools that are developed to analyze the geographic information. For example, GIS can be used to discover information about a property (parcel), including geographic location, ownership, taxes, market values, soils, topography (elevation), land classification, wetlands, watershed, crime density, address, school district, etc.
Carver County GIS provides mapping applications for the public to interact with data being maintained by various County divisions. Please visit the GIS home page for more information about Carver County GIS.
