The Skagit County Street Atlas is designed to be used as a quick reference for displaying detail views of streets within Skagit County. The atlas includes a comprehensive road index making it easy to navigate to a specific area of the county. You are welcome to download the entire (500 plus sheets) atlas and view or print the contents. To do this you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader® installed on your computer. Updates to this atlas will be made periodically and added to the atlas.
Map Accuracy Warning: This map was created from available public records and existing map sources not from field surveys. Map features from all sources have been adjusted to achieve a best-fit registration to the Ownership Parcels map. While great care was taken in this process, maps from different sources rarely agree as to the precise location of geographic features. The relative positioning of map features to one another results from combining different map sources without field ground truthing. Errors can be as great as 300 feet on this document.
Abstract: Skagit County, along with other emergency response
agencies, identified a need for a standardized county-wide street atlas
having a uniform index system with scalability. To address this need,
Skagit County GIS produced a comprehensive street atlas with a custom
indexing system. The indexing system is alpha numeric in style, and geometrically
coincides with the grid lines of the United States National Grid. The
index grid is broken into two scales; 3000m x 3000m, and 1000m x 1000m
for more detailed areas. The index grid can be broken down further, if
necessary, into a custom 500m x 500m size for areas of more detail.
