Mapping Department is part of the Assessorís Office and provides information
of accurate inventory of all taxable land within their districts. Maps are
necessary to graphically represent, on a small scale, the earths surface and
manís relationship to it. Legal descriptions and conveyances describe the
location of a property and its outline or boundaries. Unless this information is
graphically displayed, it is often difficult if not impossible for an Assessor
to know certain information about a parcel and that parcels relationship to
surrounding property. Maps do this. That is why they are so important in the
assessment process. Three basic responsibilities maps do to help the Assessors
are discover, list and appraise.
