Parcel Maps


The parcel map database is developed and maintained to provide current Parcel information. Land records and subdivision plats are used to make maps showing land ownership and public roads. The parcel map database is also the foundation for the Geographic Information System (GIS). Parcel information can be seen on the Washington County Property Viewer.
