GIS Services

Note: Huron County’s legacy mapping site is still available, but will remain active only for a short time.

The County of Huron’s Information & Technology Services team offers Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services in a variety of ways. You can explore geographical information using our online interactive viewers, you can download a pre-made map, or you can check out our map library.

Additional data sets are available by contacting our team directly. Simply send us an e-mail or give us a call and we would be glad to assist you. All of our contact information can be found at the bottom of this page.

Data Requests

Consultants working under contract for the County or area municipalities within Huron County can request GIS data needed for their work.

Notwithstanding the terms of the contract, at this time requests for GIS data must be made in writing (printed letter, e-mail, or fax). The request must identify the project for which the information is required; identify the municipality’s project manager and list, in detail, all of the information required. If the request is limited to a specific area, a shape file or map supporting the request is helpful.

The request must be submitted to the GIS team for processing. A data-sharing agreement might have to be signed as a result.
