ORMap Vision

ORMap Vision


The 1999 Oregon Legislature provided funding for ORMAP (the Oregon Map) through a document-recording fee collected by the counties. This money is put into the ORMAP fund, separate from the state General Fund, to be used only for the development of the Oregon Map.

The ORMAP project will develop a statewide property tax parcel base map that is digital, publicly accessible, and continually maintained. This move from paper to computer-based mapping will help and improve the administration of the property tax system. In addition, it will allow public and private organizations to support a wide variety of GIS (geographic information system) applications. In addition to the maps themselves you will find information about our program, the funding for counties, contact information, meeting schedules, links to county websites, help in using this site, and steps to take if you want further access to the data.

ORS 306.132(2): "Moneys in the Oregon Land Information System Fund are continuously appropriated to the Department of Revenue for the purpose of funding a base map system to be used in administering the ad valorem property tax system." [1999 c.701 ��7]
