County GIS Sources

Counties of Nevada

The purpose for including county Assessor Offices which do not have online GIS Street Address data at the time of their inclusion here is to show that they were looked into, and not merely overlooked. It also provides a placeholder for those counties against the day when they might add such services at a future date. If you're looking for information on a county which shows not having GIS data online in the above list, you are encouraged to click on that link and look through what that office has to offer. If the location has added GIS services, its entry in the above list can be corrected to reflect that.

Other Resources (non-Street Address)

  • Nevada 511 Online - Road construction and other information in Nevada (interactive map)

The purpose of links to BLM road resources is to adjust highway vehicle accessible roads. We do not need to map ATV/motorcycle/bike/hiking trails, and in no case should they be connected to or end near a navigable road.

At the present time Waze is not mapping MVUM roads less than roads listed below:

OK TO MAP - Roads open to highway legal vehicles only

Roads open to all vehicles (licensed and unlicensed)

  1. NOT MAPPED -Trails open to vehicles 50 inches or less in width (ATV, motorcycle, etc.), and
  2. NOT MAPPED - Trails open to all (full size) vehicles (trails may be rugged and narrow- intended for jeeps)
  3. NOT MAPPED - Trails open to motorcycles only (single track).

Nevada uses Road Types/USA to determine the classification of "road type" of roads in WME. While there has been a little bit of confusion regarding the road types based on common sense. If you read the wiki, Nevada uses the DOT guidelines for the purpose of navigation routing and not based on the given name of the road. Nevada has a lot of graded gravel roads which are technically considered primary roads within WME. Before changing a road type to anything less than that which is assigned in the NV DOT functional classification check with area manager, state manager, or country managers within the Nevada Forum.

Within the NV DOT website are also official city maps which may assist assigning street names when the GIS from the County doesn't exist.
