Barton County Mapping/GIS
The Mapping Office is responsible for maintaining the ownership parcel map used by the county appraiser for valuing property. This parcel map is also used by other county departments and cities in Barton County and is available on line (click on the Parcel Search tab) for viewing parcel boundaries with various years of aerial photos and attached appraisal data. Other maps have been developed upon request of county departments, other government agencies, and the general public. The mapping office also has several sets of aerial photography. There are high resolution digital orthophotographs from 1998, 2005(cities), 2010, 2013(full county), and higher resolution 2018(cities). These photos were purchased by the county and can be viewed in the mapping office or ordered by the map area or image tile. The office also has the digital orthophotos developed by the USDA/FSA for agriculture review (NAIP) for the years of 2002-2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2017. The NAIP one meter, leaf on, imagery is available to download from the FSA website. The NAIP and other imagery are available on the DASC website. See the Links tab for these and other websites. Older printed black & white aerial photos are also available in the Mapping Office; 1985, 1973, 1957, 1938. GIS (Geographic Information System) files are also available upon request.
