FIVCO serves northeastern Kentucky counties
The FIVCO ADD (Area Development Districts) was founded in 1968 and serves its five county region in many different capacities. The Board of Directors consists of 27 members from the five-county area. The purpose of the ADD is to assist in the areas of planning, transportation, GIS and economic development.
The FIVCO ADD includes Boyd, Carter, Greenup, Elliott and Lawrence counties.
Kentucky’s counties are grouped into 15 ADD regions. Although they are public bodies under Kentucky law, the ADDs are not state agencies nor are they another level of government. Instead, the ADDs should be thought of as partnerships of local units of government. Locally elected officials and citizen members comprise the ADD boards of directors.
The ADD staffs are made up of professionals with a wide range of backgrounds in such areas as economic development, human services, management and planning. By sharing the expertise found on ADD staffs, local governments are collectively able to afford the professional staff that many counties and cities could not afford by themselves.

GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS)
The GIS department at FIVCO utilizes an array of GIS software applications and GPS technologies to create and maintain current and accurate digital geographic data and thematic maps for the FIVCO region. The data and maps are used to assist in planning and decision making by state and local government, local utilities, as well as private industry.
What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer-based tool for mapping and analyzing things that exist and events that happen on earth. GIS technology integrates common database operations such as query and statistical analysis with the unique visualization and geographic analysis benefits offered by maps.
GIS is an integrated system of computer hardware, software, and trained personnel linking topographic, demographic, utility, facility, image and other resource data that is geographically referenced.
What is GPS?
Global Positioning System (GPS) is a technology that uses the position of satellites to determine locations on earth. GPS is an essential tool for GIS because it allows for the gathering of data that locationwise is highly accurate.
