Lyman County is pleased to announce the new interactive Internet Mapping Site available for use by the public. Lyman County has undertaken this project in conjunction with Brule and Hanson Counties in association with Third Planning & Development District at Yankton, SD.

A variety of interactive maps are available online for these three counties. Citizens from these counties will be able to access maps that illustrate many types of data: parcels, aerial photography, soils, census information, hunting areas, general road maps, and special district maps (schools, zoning, fire, voting, etc.). The site also includes tools to allow the user to select specific areas within a map to compare various layers of data. For example, the user can create a map that will show the census population of a specific voting district.

Kim Halverson, Lyman County Commission Chairman stated, "We have had this information available for some time in the Director of Equalization’s office. Now it is available to the world through the World Wide Web. I can see a great benefit to the residents of Lyman County and the people our county offices deal with on a daily basis."

Log on to this new service provided to you by Lyman County and check it out. The site may be accessed from the Lyman County web site at http://www.lymancounty.org and click on Lyman County Imagery or from the links page at http://www.lcherald.com. Lyman County is a member of the Third Planning & Development District, which serves 15 South Dakota south central counties with planning and development projects.
