GIS: Geographic Information System (IT Department)

Purpose
The GIS (geographic information system) staff supports Ouray County departments by producing and maintaining GIS data, most frequently used in the production of graphics and maps (cartography).

‚ÄčOn-Line Parcel and GIS Data
Due to budget and staffing limitations, Ouray County is unable to provide a robust on-line GIS mapping service at this time.
On-line parcel information is available on the Assessor's webpage.
A GoogleEarth-compatible Parcel layer is available for download (see below).

Draft GIS Data Layers Availability 
Ouray County GIS is currently revising our GIS base layers.
At this time, requests for Ouray County GIS data should be emailed to Ouray County GIS staff.
