These products are recommended for everyday plat book users. The base map content is the same as the plat book, but each file has a slightly different application and delivery depending on your need. eBooks look just like the plat book, but come in the form of a digital .pdf. MobilePlat is a seamless .pdf of the entire county and offers geolocation ability when used on your mobile device. GeoPlat also offers a seamless view of the county, but is designed to be imported and used within Google Earth.

All three products in this category contain a Lifetime Site License. The Lifetime Site License allows you to share the file within your site location (like an office). You can put the file on multiple devices as well as print out individual pages. The license does not need to be renewed and is valid for as long as you retain the file. These are the only digital products that come bundled with a Lifetime Site License.

Parcel Shapefile Data is the product for you if you are in need of more information than what the plat book provides. Our fully attributed parcel polygon data contains information such as PINS (Parcel ID), Ownership Information, Addresses and other related attributes. These files are intended to be used in GIS software like ArcMap or Google Earth. Pricing depends on available attributes and varies by county.
