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
  • And more!

You can view the data in several ways:

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

 

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. 

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.
