Maps & Data: Issues/Usage/Interpretation

Whether on paper or electronic, all maps are merely abstractions. A map is an attempt to represent some aspect of reality for some specific purpose. No single map is perfect for all purposes.

The maps and data presented here are aggregated from a wide variety of sources. Care has been taken to integrate these various data sources as well as possible. However, each agency providing data may have their own internal standards for accuracy and timeliness that may affect the degree to which the various data sources agree with each other.

Thus you may find that parcel lines (from the Assessor's office) may not line up exactly with flood data (derived from FEMA maps) or census boundaries (derived from US Census maps) or with aerial photography, et cetera. Each of these data sources may be considered on their own, for their own purposes, but comparisons among them may not be directly possible, and some manual interpretation may be necessary.

Maps are also created with specific scales in mind that may limit their accuracy. For example, map data intended to be presented at a county-wide scale may have been simplified or created in a generalized manner such that fine details when zoomed in very close are not available. For example, state-wide soils data will not be accurate down to a specific parcel level of detail.

There are also timing issues to contend with, as each data source may not be updated with the same frequency. Even among the Assessor's office, the data from their mapping department (parcel lines) and their data entry department (textual parcel information) may not be updated concurrently. Thus for recently modified parcels you may find discrepancies in the data.

The maps presented here represent an ongoing process of data creation - they will never be finished. The underlying data is constantly changing. Every attempt has been made to keep the data as current and accurate as possible, but these maps cannot be considered an authoritative source of data.
