Maps

As the second-largest landowner in the state, we rely on maps. A lot.

Our Geographic Information System (GIS) is publicly available and provides a catalog of:

  • All surface trust land (2.8 million acres)
  • All trust mineral estate (4 million acres)
  • Ownership records for all trust surface land and mineral estate
  • All current lease records on trust assets
  • Many lease records
  • And more!

You can view the data in several ways:

  • Use our map server
  • Use our ArcGIS
  • Downloand ESRI shapefiles

 

Tips for using the map server:

Access the online map server.

  • The fastest way to look up state owned land records is by using the "find" tool. You can search by Township/Range or Section, County, Lease Number, Lessee Name, Property Name or Lat/Long coordinates.
  • Use the help tab for assistance. 

Use the map server to download a copy of a lease:

You can download a copy of a lease and any associated lease riders with three easy steps:

  1. Click the parcel of land on the map or enter the lease number in search box.
  2. Select the lease record number from the left column.
  3. Click the orange L in the top left column (pictured right).

Viola! You will see the lease record and can download it. 

We are continuing to make more copies of State Land Board leases readily available to you through this map server. If you can't find what you're looking for, we're here to help! Simply fill our this form or contact us

ArcGIS

Our ArcGIS maps are pre-populated with specific criteria based your commonly asked questions, such land disposals, recreation, expiring leases, and renewable energy. Let us know if you have other suggestions for these specialized maps. 

ESRI shapefiles

Shapefiles are non-topological file formats that store the geometric location and attribute information of geographic features. A typical home computer does not support shapefiles. Here are some commonly requested shapefiles, but you're welcome to request specific shapefiles as needed.

Still not finding what you're looking for?

It's not always as easy as 'X' marks the spot.
