GIS and Parcel Data

FTP Site - For Data Download Only

Password: Bayfield

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

A variety of Land Records data is available for free download through the FTP site. To access the FTP site, follow the website 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 somewhere between you and the server. For this reason, it's helpful to use an FTP connection with a resume feature.

Parcel Mapping & GIS Data Maintenance

The Land Records Department maps and maintains parcels in Bayfield County. Parcel mapping is updated periodically throughout the year as new property descriptions, Certified Survey Maps, and plats are recorded. Additional datasets such as addresses, roadways, section corner monument records, survey points, zoning districts, and much more are also maintained by the Land Records Department. Please see the FTP site for data download or view the parcel data through our REST Services page or Interactive Web Map.
