The GIS/Mapping Department maintains parcel tax maps using the latest in Geographic Information System (GIS) technology. GIS is a technology which uses geographic displays of maps with smart points, lines and areas. It also incorporates a data-base to store tabular information relating to each parcel. This allows for each parcel to be analyzed for correct valuation.
In February 2013, Houston County was flown for updated digital orthophotography and 2 foot contours. The final product consists of digital imagery with pixel resolution of 0.5 foot for 100 scale mapping and 1 foot for 200 scale mapping. This project was performed by The Atlantic Group from Huntsville, Alabama.
Our records are maintained daily which include keeping track of property changes using the most recent documents recorded in the Judge of Probates Office, i.e. deeds, subdivision plats, and other miscellaneous documents.
Copies of tax maps and aerial photography (photography years 2000, 2007 and 2013) are available for sale to the public from our office. We also have county roadmaps, City of Dothan Metro Area maps, and small town roadmaps.
