Mapping/GIS Data

The purpose of the GIS department of the Kanawha County Assessor’s Office is to create and maintain digital and paper tax maps. We also maintain a database of all parcels taxed within the county’s boundaries. We are currently working to provide a more accurate paper representation of all tax parcels available to the public using digital mapping. This will allow tax parcels to be clearly and accurately depicted based upon public records. Our goal is to create a map that is appealing to the public as well as accurate based upon deeds, surveys, etc. This will not only help the taxpayer to be able to locate their property, but will also afford our appraisal department the ability to fairly and accurately evaluate properties. It is also the goal of our department to be public friendly. We enjoy working very closely with surveyors, property appraisers and the citizens of our county.

The Kanawha County Parcel Viewer is provided by the Kanawha County Assessor’s Office to allow for easy access and a visual display of County information. Every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the maps and data provided; nevertheless, some information may not be accurate. The Kanawha County Assessor assumes no responsibility arising from the use of this information.

THE MAPS AND ASSOCIATED DATA ARE PROVIDED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, either expressed or implied, including but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Do not make any business decisions based on data before validating your decision with the appropriate County office. The Assessor parcel maps are for assessment use only and DO NOT represent a survey. The Assessor parcel maps are compiled from official records, including surveys and deeds, but only contain the information required for assessment.
