PROPERTY OWNERSHIP DATABASE
PARCEL MAP GIS
Ownership parcel maps are maintained on the county's Geographic Information System (GIS). These maps are available for viewing or purchase at the office counter. The GIS maps can also be viewed at Land Records Online.
RURAL ADDRESS ASSIGNMENT
The office assigns all addresses for new homes and businesses that are located outside of villages and cities in Jefferson County. The county-wide address system that was installed in 1984 starts at the southeast corner of the county with W100 and N100. The numbers increase by 400 numbers per mile to the north and west.
LAND RECORD MODERNIZATION
The Land Information Office coordinates the Land Records Modernization Program. The program funds technology improvements to advance efficiency and effectiveness of county departments that use land records to provide services to the citizenry. GIS and the document imaging system have been key components of modernization efforts. Integration of these systems with other county databases has made map, document and database information on land ownership, zoning, soils, topography, surveying etc. readily available. Access to this information is available to the public via public access terminals at the courthouse or through the Land Records Web Services Internet site.
