About Skagit County Maps:
Skagit County has many maps available for public viewing. Some of these maps are interactive web maps that launch in your web browser while the others are electronic copies of the paper maps we create and require Adobe Reader software (PDF file format) to view them. The content in both interactive web maps and PDF maps may overlap. For example, Assessor property maps are available as interactive web maps and as PDF maps. There are advantages and disadvantages to both formats but the interactive web maps typically provide more information and are not confined to a specific map extent like static PDF maps. The PDF map only provides a picture of the map and typically represents the "legal" map copy. Most maps are currently in PDF format but we will continue to add interactive maps to this page. If you would like to view and print PDF maps, you will need a current version of Adobe Reader software. Please note that PDF files contain a great deal of information and, depending on your internet speed, may take significant time to download.

Purchasing Maps
If you are interested in purchasing a printed copy of a specific PDF formatted map, you can either purchase the map from Skagit County or you can go to a local print shop and have them print the PDF map. To order a printed map from Skagit County go to the GIS Map Gallery and select the map you would like to print. Write down the name of the map and any other pertinent information including the map scale if available. Next, contact the Public Works Records Division (360-416-1400) and let them know you would like to purchase a printed map from the Map Gallery. They will provide the cost of the map and the time frame for printing.

Questions:
For questions regarding the maps we provide, please feel free to contact the Skagit County GIS Department at 360-416-1168 or email the GIS Manager.
