Kalamazoo County Online Mapping


As of February 2014, we have upgraded the software of the GIS mapping website. There are some minor changes in the functions of the website, and the navigation bar and the layout has changed. We hope that you will find this website an improvement and will soon get used to the changes. Please don't hesitate to contact our office at 269-384-8112 should you need help navigating the site.


Please disable all pop-up blockers before using the Online GIS.


How to Use this Site:

This service will enable you to search our county-wide mapping system. You have the option of viewing the county in detail based on particular criteria or by zooming in to an area of interest. This is a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) application. On this mapping website, you can view tax maps, a countywide generalized zoning map, aerial imagery from 2009-2013, a water table map, areas that require a soil erosion permit and many other themes.

After clicking on the Continue to Mapping and I Agree to the Terms of Use links, more detailed information is available in the tab Welcome to Kalamazoo County, MI Online GIS on the right side of the map screen (under the House icon)

For questions regarding this service, please contact the Kalamazoo County Planning & Development Department at 269-384-8112 or by email
