GIS Maps / Data

While we make every effort to ensure the Geographic Information System (GIS) data is current, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. Technical issues such as Internet congestion, spyware/viruses on your computer and data corruption during transmission can affect your results. In the event of discrepancies between the information on this page and the official data, the St. James Parish Office of Geographic Information Services internal data will prevail.
