The tax lots were digitized by county staff and by students at OIT. They were digitized directly from scanned images of the tax maps. Therefore, the positional accuracy of the linework will vary across the county and should be used accordingly. The current tax lots are maintained in the GIS by GIS staff and updated on a monthly basis.

Klamath County sells its tax lots in ESRI shapefile format. Each parcel has a value in an MTL field that links it to the Assessor ownership and property value information. A few other specialized layers are available such as special road districts, livestock districts, and lighting districts. For information on obtaining these shapefiles, please contact Klamath County GIS.
For street centerlines and road names the county utilizes a GIS layer maintained by Aspen GIS Services, Inc. For information on obtaining street centerlines contact Aspen GIS Services by email or by phone at 541-591-4946.
The tax lot linework and the associated attribute data (ownership and property value) is no more than a month older than the assessors most current maps. The tax map TIF files are the current set of assessor maps and are no older than a few days.
