The Vilas County Mapping Department accepts custom project and service requests from the public, which are completed on a first-come first-serve basis. Time to complete these requests varies depending on workload and availability; we request that you allow for a two-week turnaround for most standard project requests. Payment must be received in advance, and all checks should be made out to "Vilas County". Please see our fee schedule for pricing.

Helpful Tips

Owner Listings

In order to generate an owner listing from the "Owner Listings" mapping application, use one of the tools at the top-right of the screen. Once the tool has been executed, click the three dots in the Output tab of the tool to export a "CSV" file which can be brought into a spreadsheet program. The best practice for using this file is to import the CSV into a new text-formatted spreadsheet rather than opening the CSV directly. If the CSV is opened directly there is a chance that the spreadsheet program will interpret the computer numbers as dates and convert their format, thus making them unusable as computer numbers.
