Land Information & GIS Maps
Disclaimer of Accuracy and Acceptance
For Use of Vernon County Land Information
The GIS Map & Land Records Portal sites linked below provide maps, data, and related land information services to Vernon County citizens, government entities, public agencies, and business professionals. All information is believed to be accurate but is NOT GUARANTEED to be without error.
In 2019, GIS based parcel map coverage was completed county-wide. Maintenance of parcel map and related data will be ongoing as parcels are split, combined, surveyed, and/or as updated information about Public Land Survey System (PLSS) corners (including interior "40" corners) is filed/recorded with the County. The property boundaries and PLSS lines as mapped are based on a compilation of records from a variety of sources and accuracy levels. Mapped property lines and other mapped features may not correspond to actual locations on the ground and may be subject to interpretation. The aerial imagery used as map backdrops are from several different sources and years having varying specifications & characteristics. The visible features on these aerial images may not reflect absolute ground location. For example, there may be "building lean" present in the images which may make it appear that a building is across a property line, when in fact it it is not. Any such possible encroachments that are of concern should be verified by a Professional Land Surveyor.
Please Note: The property boundaries displayed in the County's GIS based maps are not a Substitute for a land survey performed by a Professional Land Surveyor registered in the State of Wisconsin.
For additional information about the GIS map data layers maintained by the County please contact the Vernon County Land Information Office, firstname.lastname@example.org, 608-637-5314.
Attribute information associated with parcels displayed in Pop-ups on the GIS Map may not be current. View the parcel record and property tax information via the Land Records Portal (a.k.a. GCS Web Portal), or contact the County Treasurer, email@example.com, 608-637-5367; or the Real Property Lister, firstname.lastname@example.org, 608-637-5366, for the most current information. From a parcel record within the Land Records Portal a user can launch the GIS Map and automatically zoom to the mapped parcel by clicking on the View GIS Map link. From the GIS Map a user can launch the Land Records Portal and go directly to the specific parcel record by clicking on the linked parcel number.
The Land Records Portal contains information on Notices of Federal Tax Lien and other lien documents that is not identical in content to documents presented to the Register of Deeds by the IRS. Therefore, the results of a search of this indexing system cannot be relied upon in judicial or administrative proceedings related to title or transfer of property, including but not limited to searches relative to sales of property and foreclosure proceedings, in determining ownership interests in property on which a Notice of Federal Tax Lien attaches.
For assistance in obtaining a copy of the required document as filed by the IRS, or questions about documents listed on the site, please contact the Register of Deeds Office, email@example.com, 608-637-5371. Copies of recorded documents may be obtained only from this office for which the search was conducted.
Vernon County assumes no responsibility for direct, indirect, special, consequential, exemplary or other damages. The user is responsible for determining the suitability of the information for their particular end use and understands these conditions.
The New Public GIS Map has now been made the default public GIS web map application. It does not require Adobe Flashplayer and includes additional information including the ability to obtain an elevation by clicking a position on the map (DEM data layer must be checked on), view a hillshade as the map background, and display accurate 2' contour lines. These 3 new map layers are based on 2010 LiDAR data that was acquired by the County. If you need assistance with working with the new map, please contact the Land Information Office.
Please Note: The "Forced Scale" option under the Advanced link when printing maps does not print at the input scale. It is a known issue by ESRI. We will be working on finding a solution. Sorry for any inconvenience.
