Lubbock Emergency Communication District

GIS & Addressing

The acronym GIS stands for Geographic Information System. It is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographically referenced data. The District GIS effort was created to build an accurate map for rural address assignment and to locate 9-1-1 callers. In recent years, the focus has shifted away from data collection and creation to data validation and maintenance.


The District is designated as the sole addressing authority for the unincorporated areas of Lubbock County. Through a project which lasted more than a decade, the District converted all rural route designations in Lubbock County to physical addresses.

For questions concerning addressing, or to request a physical address, you can contact our offices by sending an email to . You can also request an address online.
