    Ownership of Products

    All information, web pages, data (including digital data), maps, programs, software, studies, reports, patents, copyrights and plans obtained by and prepared for and by the Pima County Geographic Information Systems (hereafter "Products") shall remain the property of Pima County.

    Limitation of Use

    Products are for illustration purposes only and are not suitable for site-specific decision making. Products have not been prepared for and are not suitable for engineering, or surveying purposes. Generally, Products do not represent on-the-ground surveys and rather represent the approximate relative location of boundaries and features. Use of Products as an engineering tool is expressly forbidden. Products should not be used for making financial or any other commitments. The County provides these Products with the understanding that they are not guaranteed to be accurate, correct or complete and conclusions drawn from the Products are the responsibility of the User. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy, correctness and timeliness of materials presented anywhere within the Products, the County assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions, even if the County is advised of the possibility of such damage.

    Project information is for planning purposes only. The listing of any project by the owner agency does not constitute an official commitment by that agency to build the project in the time period shown, or at all. The information for any project is subject to change as the project development process proceeds over time.

    Assumption of Risk

    User understands and acknowledges that Products are subject to constant change and accuracy cannot be guaranteed. The County gathers information from different sources and agencies. ALL PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED AS IS, WITH ALL FAULTS, AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. County does not warrant that the functions contained in the Products will meet the requirements of User or that the operation of Products will be uninterrupted or error free, or that defects will be corrected. The entire risk as to the quality, performance and usefulness of the Products rests with User.

    Products may have a number of errors which may include but are not limited to the following types of errors:

    • Spatial errors - The areas depicted by these Products are approximate, and are not necessarily accurate to surveying or engineering standards. X/Y coordinates may be in error by several hundred feet or more.
    • Geometry errors - Displayed geometry may not be correct and may not correspond to legal descriptions or recordings.
    • Registration errors - Geographic Information System (hereafter "GIS") data layers may not overlay each other correctly.
    • Attribute errors - Database information may be incorrect.
    • Currency errors - GIS data layers, databases and documents may not be the most current available or may not depict the specified time. All data is subject to constant change. Data input lags real-world changes by varying periods of time.
    • Completeness errors - Data may be missing or data may be included that does not belong.
    • Projection distortion - All map projections introduce distortion by representing the irregular shape of the earth's surface on flat maps. This affects feature shapes, angles, map distances and areas. We choose projections which minimize these distortions when viewing most County maps.
    • Calculation errors - Results of calculations may not be exact due to rounding, precision of stored values or algorithm differences.
    • Representation errors - Maps or other displays may not properly represent the data. For instance, a white line on a white background would appear as if it wasn't there. Color coded ("themed") map layers colors and categories may not match the current range of data values. Data may be displayed at an inappropriate scale. For example, selecting map features on PimaMaps maps changes the color of the displayed map features. (Clear selected map features to ensure colors match the legend.)

    THE FOREGOING WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR ANY OTHER TYPE WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. In no event shall the County become liable to Users of these Products or any other party, for any loss or direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, including but not limited to time, money or goodwill, arising from the use or modification of the Products.


    Availability of County Internet services and Products is not guaranteed. Applications, servers, and network connections may be unavailable at any time for maintenance or unscheduled outages. Outages may be of long duration. Do not create dependencies on these services for critical needs.

    Indemnify; Defend; Hold Harmless

    User releases County and their officers, agents, consultants, contractors and employees from any and all claims, actions or causes of action for damages including, but not limited to, any costs of recovering, reprogramming or reproducing and programs or data stored in or used with the Products, damage to property, damages for personal injury or for any lost profits, lost savings or other special, incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use of or inability to use the Products. User shall indemnify and hold harmless County, its officers, agents, consultants, contractors and employees from any and all liability claims or damages to any person or property arising from or connected with the use of the Products.
