Wisconsin's First Statewide Parcel Map

The Wisconsin Department of Administration and State Cartographer's Office have recently announced the release of the Version 1 Statewide Parcel Map, the state's first publically available digital parcel map.

The first statewide parcel map is one step in improving GIS (geographic information system) in Wisconsin. Parcel maps are one of the most important map layers in GIS today, as they depict land ownership, land use, and the value of property. Because almost every aspect of government and business can be associated with a land parcel, digital parcel data can be used to support economic development, emergency planning and response, natural resource management, and a host of other citizen services.

Maps of all parcels in a community are created and maintained at the local level. The Version 1 Statewide Parcel Map Database brings together local parcel data for all 72 of Wisconsin counties into a single database.
