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.

Parcel Data

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.
