GIS and Mapping

The GIS/Mapping department office is responsible for maintaining data such as parcels, roads, county districts and boundaries.  The GIS office is involved with many County offices such as the Assessor's Office, Elections Office and the County Commissioners. 

GIS Mapping allows users to easily overlay any map layers (Roads, slope, contours, parcels, etc) Custom maps of parcels and/or Swain County are available.

Parcel and ownership information is available online. Please visit our GIS website at ROK
Please feel free to contact the GIS Developer, Kurt Angel with any comments and ideas about how we can improve our GIS website.

Available GIS layers
Roads, parcels (w/ownership), 2006 Color photography, 3D hillshade, 10ft contours, slope models, lakes, rivers, government jurisdiction (federal, state and local), county boundary, city boundary, USGS 1:24000 topo, voter districts and fire districts.
Many other GIS layers are available from a variety of sources, please ask if you don't see what you need.
