Play along and contribute to the maps in San Juan County

  • Today at 1:30AM

For hundreds of years, humans have used maps for navigating to new worlds, charting unknown locations and recording histories. Today, the county uses building footprints in maps for dispatching emergency responders, planning land use designations, appraising property values and designing proper infrastructure. County maps are also used by real-estate professionals, delivery companies, transportation providers, developers and construction companies. As communities grow and infrastructure changes, maps need to be updated.
