Thurston County government makes online maps with layers that show County zones, flood hazard areas, gopher soils and much more. The County's map-making department is called GeoData. They make great maps, but because of the ever-changing nature of the land and water, the County's maps don't meet legal, engineering or survey standards. Consult with your own experts before making decisions.

Permitting Map - View mapped information for a property within Thurston County. Layers include zones, gophers, soils, flood hazards and more.
