The City of Hurricane's GIS department, a part of the Engineering Department, is responsible for the maintenance, analysis, and distribution of geographic data to city decision makers, city departments, and the general public. The goal of the GIS Department is to provide the most accurate and cost effective information in support of the decision making process.
What is GIS? A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a technology for the organization, analysis, and dissemination of spatial data. Commonly thought of as a fancy term for making maps, GIS goes much farther. It also allows for advanced organization, processing, data mining, and interpolation to seek meaning and relationships in geographic data.
The following is a list of standard maps available for download in PDF format and in hardcopy. Some of these maps are large so patience is required. If you cannot download a map please contact the GIS office for electronic or paper copies. These maps are not intended for promotional purposes and modifications are not authorized.

Available for download are two maps compiled and published by the BLM that describe the Hurricane Cliffs and Gooseberry Mesa Mountain Bike trail systems. Click one of the links below to download the maps:
Available for download are four geologic maps compiled and published by the Utah Geological Survey that cover the City of Hurricane. These geologic maps are based on the four USGS 7 1/2', 1:24,000 scale maps listed below:
Also available is the 1:100,000 scale St. George 30' x 60' geologic map that covers Washington County.
In 2008 the Utah Geologic Survey published Special Study 127, Geologic Hazards and Adverse Construction Conditions. This study covered St. George - Hurricane Metro areas of Washington County at 1:24,000 scale mapping. Copies of this report, along with the GIS data, can be ordered on DVD directly from the UGS Bookstore.
The City of Hurricane Planning/Zoning Department will begin using this study as a guide when evaluating new developments that may require special conditions. To facilitate this policy the GIS Department has produced a series of map at 1:24,000 scale maps that focus specifically on Hurricane. These maps are also a valuable resource for developers when searching for candidate areas within the city suitable for development.
The City of Hurricane has copies of the Special Study reports listed below on file.
Below is a list of 1:24,000 scale maps specifically covering Hurricane City. All maps listed are available by request in hard copy or PDF format from the GIS office.
The Washington County GIS Department has several sources of county-wide mapping data available. You can order hard copy custom maps and download numerous informational maps in PDF format. Using the Recorder's Office Interactive map you can lookup parcel information, create your own PDF maps, and add your own labels and line work to those maps. A great tool for doing parcel research.
The Utah Automated Geographic Reference Center (AGRC) encourages and facilitates the effective use of geospatial information and technology within Utah. As part of that mission the AGRC runs the State Geographic Information Database (SGID) that contains files and links to several categories of state-wide GIS data sets. All data listed in the SGID is considered to be in the public domain and are free for downloading. A great source of state-wide GIS data.
Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) are the developers of the popular ArcGIS suite of GIS programs and databases. ArcGIS is used extensively both within the state and by most local govenments within Washington County. The City of Hurricane has adopted ArcGIS as the standard for our GIS development and production.
Trimble Navigation, Ltd. are the makers of high quality surveying and mapping equipment. The City of Hurricane has adopted the Trimble GeoXT and GeoXH GPS handhelds for utility mapping and locating. These handhelds are capable of sub-centimeter accuracy after differential post-processing.
