Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Douglas County has been collecting digital data since the late 1980s. Our main goal, in the beginning, was to automate the assessment mapping and achieve a streamlined process for updating and sharing a common base. Then the work began.
PLSS Base & Land Ownership
We first developed a PLSS base and a land ownership dataset that was tied to the State Plane NAD27 coordinate system. All other information was built on this data set. Later the map was shifted to a State Plane NAD83 coordinate base as a whole with no adjustments.
You will notice that not everything will line up exactly due to the process of years of collecting data from different sources at different reliability factors. This website is a work in progress which will improve as new or better information is made available. The use of new technology has given us the ability to distribute information to the public in a visual manner. This is our goal! Open the map and search the database.
The maps and information provided herein are for convenience only. Although reasonable attempts are made to maintain this interactive map as accurate as possible, these maps are being provided as an informational convenience only. Douglas County and other participating entities, will in no way be liable for any inaccuracies, inconsistencies, errors, omissions, or other deviations in these maps.
