Contours
In 2018, the Monroe County Auditor's office contracted Kucera International to produce QL3/0.8m Lidar data and from that generate 2' contours for the county. A tile download map was created for users to download individual DWG file contour tiles instead of the entire county needlessly. Along with this we have a geodatabase file for the entire county available for download if you would like to import it into ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro.
Note: We also have the original Lidar data available but due to the large file size (about 135 GB), this data will have to be obtained directly from our office via an external hard-drive or thumb-drive.
