Geographic Information Systems

GIS is the storage or retrieval of geographic details/maps such as aerial photographs, parcels, surveys, etc. in a system or database of attributes or coordinates that can be layered into maps and utilized for reports, planning and analysis. The Hillsdale County GIS is updated and maintained using several data sources


Hillsdale County GIS Interactive Maps

(Website link) can be viewed in "layers" that you can turn off/on for the purpose of analysis. Some layers are scaled and only visible when zoomed in. The maps are neither a legally recorded map nor a survey and are not intended to be used as one. This service will enable you to search our mapping system for a particular property or any other location. You have the option of viewing the County in detail based on a particular address, property identification number (PIN) or by zooming in to an area of interest. The maps are a compilation of records, information and data located in various township, city, county, state and federal offices and other sources regarding the area shown, and are to be used for reference purposes only.
