East Michigan Council of Governments (EMCOG) does not currently house Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data for any of the 14 Counties for distribution to the public. Any data we might have is used for internal purposes. However, EMCOG does recognize the benefits that access to GIS data can provide to those looking for spatial information. To that end, we are providing known links to County Tax Parcel or GIS data sites for our 14 counties, and cities where known. Additionally, a link to various other State of Michigan and Federal data sites are listed.
