Welcome to our award winning GIS department. We recently were awarded the Geospatial Technology Applications Special Achievement Award from the WVAGP for our advancements in online GIS mapping of Kanawha County.
Special thanks to Chris Chrzanowski (GIS Coordinator) and John Barth (Mapping Supervisor) for heading up the project and to Randy Campbell, Kenneth Weese, and Josh Summers for their assistance in the process.
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. We encourage all taxpayers to inform us of any errors found while reviewing the tax maps.
