What are the GIS Data Types?

Standard GIS Data
 ($100)- This data is “as is”, there is no guarantee of quality from one data set to the next, the layers will vary with each CAD. This data is collected and not maintained by Texas County GIS Data. This data is updated yearly.

Premium GIS Data ($200)- This data is cleaned and maintained by Texas County GIS Data. A majority of the data sets are topology free in the terms of polygons must not overlap, lines must not overlap, lines must not self-overlap, and no dangles. These data sets are updated nightly and have uniform layers. We also have a working relationship with all of these CADs.

Proprietary GIS Data ($ 500 to $1000)- This data is owned and created by Texas County GIS Data. These shapefiles are not available at this quality anywhere else.

You must have winrar or winzip installed to extract the GIS shapefiles.
