County Geographic Information System (GIS) and Digital Map Data
Kootenai County has several Elected Official Offices and departments that
produce or offer various map products as part of regular business services, and/or
as requirements of the Idaho Code. Some of these maps are available in a
digital format, and may be downloaded from this site for viewing and printing by
both the professional and lay public. Please be sure to check that the format
of the map files are compatible with programs you use on your PC, the County is
not responsible for any problems that may occur from the use of these files.
All Kootenai County Digital Data is projected into Idaho State Plane West
coordinates, 1983 North American Datum (NAD 83) with US Survey Foot units. File
formats may be in ArcView shapefiles (.shp/.shx/.dbf) or AutoCAD R14 drawing
files (.dwg), contained within WinZip compressed files (.zip), which
additionally contain standard metadata and projection files.
Digital GIS data (in .zip files) can be downloaded from our FTP site, and are
located in logical named subdirectories under the link below. Additionally, we
have published various standard map products in Adobe Acrobat file format (.pdf),
and which are also available from the FTP site using the link below. The files
are logically named, and are available in two sizes - A size (8.5"x11") for
printing on letter size paper through a standard printer, and E size (36"x48")
for printing at poster size on a plotter. The E size product has substantially
more detail, and the file size is quite large.
