June 26, 2018
The Hubbard County GIS Office is pleased to announce the release of a brand new Parks and Recreation Finder.  This new app helps our residents and visitors find parks, trails, public water accesses, public land, and lots of other helpful information about the many recreational opportunities available year-round in the beautiful Heartland Lakes area - The Source of Adventure.

Thank you to the Hubbard County Parks and Recreation Board, the Cities of Akeley, Laporte, Nevis, and Park Rapids, the Minnesota DNR, and anyone else who helped provide information and make this valuable new app possible.

Hubbard County GIS Data is Now Available Online

Hubbard County has launched its Open Geospatial Data site that allows users to explore and download official Hubbard County data.  While other websites and companies offer to sell copies of Hubbard County GIS data, the data we provide on our Open Geospatial Data site is free of charge, comes directly from the source, and is the most up to date.  Better data availability enables more informed decision-making on investments and enhancements in our communities and provides support for numerous economic activities. This site is the only official, authoritative source for geospatial data provided by Hubbard County.  

GIS LayersWhat we do

Counties use a geographic information system, or GIS, to store, manage, and map out all kinds of useful information.  One of the simplest examples is to think about combining Google Maps with a plat book.  We use GIS technology to display, analyze, and interact with property information.  We also use GIS to help county employees track and complete tasks in the office or in the field, such as measuring buildings and setbacks, installing a road sign, or managing timber harvests.

The GIS office is responsible for the planning, design, implementation, maintenance, and technical support of the County’s GIS data, information, and products, as well as administration of the County’s Enhanced 911 (E911) addressing program which includes assigning
new physical addresses
to properties.

We have several maps and apps that provide access to a wealth of information related to property parcels, land records, property tax and assessment information, roads, government corners and PLSS data, and more.
