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 land and water are ever-changing, and because new data is added frequently, the County's maps don't meet legal, engineering or survey standards. Consult with your own experts before making decisions, but use these maps to start your research.
