In 2011, Big Horn County’s online map server was made available to allow the public access to parcel data and ownership information for the county, as well as additional data layers. The map server has empowered the public to conduct their own research and create their own maps using an internet browser. Zooming and measuring tools are available, as well as tools to query available data layers to find more information. Click on the MapServer button below, then click on the Accept Terms and Conditions button next to "and use interactive MapServer." to use the online MapServer.
If you have any questions or comments about the MapServer, please contact the Land Planning Department.
The information displayed on the map server is not to be construed as a “legal description” or official record; it is for reference purposes only. GIS data presented may not be up-to-date. The Land Planning Department makes every effort to provide updates on a regular basis.
