GIS and Parcel Data

FTP Site

A variety of Land Records data is available for free 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.

KML Files Viewable in Google Earth

We have converted several of our datasets into KML files, which can be viewed using Google Earth. The converted datasets include: addresses, parcels, roads, wetlands, and zoning districts. To download these files, visit our FTP site (instructions in the previous section).


Feature Services

To learn more, please visit our REST Services page. Feature services will not work in ArcMap or ArcCatalog, but will work through the other online tools available through the services page. This issue seems to be related to a proxy setting.

Parcel Mapping

The Land Records Department maps and maintains information on parcels in Bayfield County. Parcel mapping is updated periodically throughout the year as new property descriptions and Certified Survey Maps are recorded. Please see the FTP site for data download or view the parcel data through our REST services page or interactive web map applications.
