Parcel data

parcel lines, WestminsterQuick Links:

Vermont is one of only a few states in the country where property records are maintained at the town level. Each individual town is responsible for these property records, which may include parcel, or "tax" maps.  As such, parcel maps and data—their accuracy, format, and quality-- vary from town to town.

Obtaining Digital Parcel Data
Parcel data polygons for most towns can be downloaded as ESRI shapefiles from the Vermont Center for Geographic Information.  Go to the VGIS data warehouse, type in the keyword “parcels,” click "go," then click on the “download” button.  You may also download files directly from VCGI's FTP site

If you are looking for parcel data lines, data showing non-parcel boundary lines on tax maps (e.g. land hooks, utility easements—the “TZ” files), archive version of parcel data, more current parcel data, or information on data not available from the VGIS data warehouse, please contact GIS staff at WRC.
