  • Section-based Parcel Maps in AutoCAD DWG Format

    We changed the process for generating these DWG section maps.  The maps now include just four layers: PARCELS, TAX_CODE, STREET_CL (street centerlines) and trsLayer (section boundaries). Tax codes are the complete 9-character codes.


    Parcel section maps are available for download over the web in AutoCAD DWG format. Parcel section maps can only be downloaded one at a time. There is no bulk-download facility, nor are they available using FTP.

    Before downloading Parcel section maps, read the Disclaimer which applies to use of the Parcel section maps. See the Parcel Map Description for an overview.

    Each map covers one Public Land Survey System (PLSS) section. The Surveying System in Pima County is an explanation of how townships and sections are numbered.

    Parcel section maps in DWG format can be located and downloaded by drilling down through the file directory structure .  You can also find sections and download using PimaMaps or MapGuide.

    Download by drilling down through the file directory structure

    • Right-click on the file name and select "Save Target As..." or "Save Link As...".
    • Navigate to the desired location in the Save As dialog and adjust the "File name:" if desired.
