Finding out who owns a property or what an area looks like used to take a lot of time in most places of Pennington county, US. Three years ago, Pennington County and Rapid City joined forces to create a Geographical Information System. Now, anyone can click on a certain piece of land on the computer and find out who owns it or even look at aerial pictures. The system has become popular among real estate agents and people who want to see what the county looks like. This has helped the land department and other planning organizations along with the citizen in general. It can be explored by going to www.rcgov.org and clicking on RapidMap.
