The Milam County Appraisal District has completed the Geographic Information System (GIS) conversion process and discs are now available for public use, chief appraiser Patricia Moraw said.
Discs have been provided to taxing units and county law, fire and emergency departments. Discs will be updated on an annual basis to address ownership and appraisal updates as well as inaccuracies discovered in the proofing process.
The disc contains mapping, ownership and appraisal data as well as the software needed to view the map. MCAD will provide installation and application instructions with the disc.
A disc may be purchased at the Appraisal District’s office, 120 N. Houston in Cameron, during normal public hours 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
It should be noted that this and all mapping information created by the Appraisal District have been prepared for ad valorem tax purposes. Any information contained therein is not warranted for accuracy for any other purpose.
