Effective January 1, 2015, the authority to assign or modify street addresses within unincorporated Guilford County, and through contractual agreements the Towns of Stokesdale, Oak Ridge, Pleasant Garden, Sedalia and Whitsett was granted to the Geographic Information Services Division of the Information Services Department.

The GIS Division is also responsible for the management of the Master Road Name database for all of Guilford County. This requires coordination between Municipalities within Guilford County, Emergency Services, Guilford Metro  9-1-1, and Developers for standardized road naming.

The GIS Division performs these addressing tasks with the cooperation and support of the Planning and Development Department.
