BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Bay City is taking Google Earth to a new level.

City and county leaders unveiled a new geographic information system on Tuesday night.

It features high-resolution aerial photos of every inch of the county and combines it with other data, such as property lines.

"This data set takes Google Earth-type of information and multiplies the amount of information in the database by a hundred-fold," said Tom Hickney, Bay County executive.

The county executive said the system is geared toward economic development and people interested in real estate.

Some of the information will be free, depending on how much is required.
