The Division of Spatial Data Services provides a comprehensive suite of GIS services, demographic projections, and data research (including OPRA requests) to all Middlesex County Departments, Offices, residents and the public at large.
Staff handles requests from the public and private sectors for data, maps, and related information. Staff of this division serve as the clearinghouse for a majority of office information requests.
