GIS Data Download

FTP Site (GIS Download Only)

The FTP site allows GIS users to download GIS data. If you are looking to view GIS data, look up land information, and print maps, please use the GIS Web Map.

To access the FTP site, follow the link provided below and enter the username and password in the pop-up credentials box. GIS data is organized by folder and can be downloaded by clicking on the files. Please note that large file sizes may cause the connection to be dropped. For this reason, it's helpful to use an FTP connection with a resume feature.
