GIS & Parcel Data Downloads
Becker County is providing GIS and Parcel data available for download.
The GIS data files below, which represent 'layers' within our GIS system, are zipped packages containing ESRI® shapefiles. To make
use of this GIS data, you would need specialized software that can read and display shapefile data. Becker County uses
ArcGIS® Desktop and Server software from ESRI to work with our ever growing GIS system. For information regarding free
lightweight GIS data viewers, visit the ArcGIS
Explorer section of ESRI's website.
DISCLAIMER: THE DATA BELOW IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITH NO GUARANTEE OR REPRESENTATION ABOUT THE ACCURACY, CURRENCY, SUITABILITY,
PERFORMANCE, MERCHANTABILITY, RELIABILITY, OR FITNESS OF THE DATA FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Becker Co., MN, shall not be liable
for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, compensatory or consequential damages or third party claims resulting from the use
of this data, even if Becker Co., MN, has been advised of the possibility of such potential loss or damage. This data may not be
used in states that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages.
The 'zipped' database file below is an Access database file that contains ALL the tabular information that is publicly available and displayed on our
'Parcel Information' system - everything
from owners, addresses, land details, building details, sales, permits, etc. The database tables can, of course, be analyzed and queried
in the Microsoft Access application, and individual tables can also be opened in Microsoft Excel. Also, for GIS analysis, tables
from this database file can be joined to the Parcels GIS shapefile below for including additional parcel data.
Coordinate System for data files:
NAD 1983 State Plane Minnesota Central Zone FIPS 2202, Feet
*Data files that get updated most frequently will be automatically created and saved to this site every weekend. Data files
