GIS (Geographic Information Systems)
The GIS group’s purpose is to provide the most updated GIS data to Brazoria County and the public. Some GIS data is sensitive, although public information. For such sensitive information, an Open Records Request may be necessary.
If information being requested is listed below, please contact that organization directly.
General / common maps are available for download here. Hardcopy maps are available in various print sizes, for a fee to cover the cost of supplies. Map fees vary depending on size and color.
