GIS and Cadastral Mapping

The Department of Revenue specifies standards for statewide parcel mapping and for the acquisition of aerial photography county property appraisers use​ for assessment purposes. We annually review county GIS parcel maps for completeness and adherence to specifications. We also provide technical assistance in cadastral issues, as well as in contracting for and the collection of aerial photography.​

Aerial Photography

The Department coordinates the capture and distribution of ortho imagery of approximately one-third of the state ​each year according to section 195.022, F.S.​​
