Map Features
interactivemap_roads250This map depicts several GIS layers of information.
Open the interactive map.

The Road layer has been updated from the original MN DOT base map to better fit existing Air Photography. However due to topography some road positions could be in accurate, as we find inaccuracies we edit them for correctness in accordance to the data we have available at the time.

This Road Layer is the base bone for the E-911 system and, is continuously updated to maintain the needed accuracy for E-911.

The cadastral data is derived from the PLS parcel base map.

Otter Tail County Road Ranges
Created by the Otter Tail County GIS Department for rural addressing and by municipalities when new development occurs. The low / high numbers are not meant to depict right or left sides of a road but are all inclusive of the house numbers assigned to that segment.

Zip Codes
The county has no direct way to know when a resident changes their postal delivery. The zip code included in the road database has been assigned by:
  • The postal zip used in the mailing of the tax statement on homesteaded property
  • The analysis of all mailing addresses on a segment of road (homesteaded property) to ascertain mail delivery
  • Input from property owners
There are certain segments of Otter Tail County roads where mail delivery is being accomplished by 2 separate post offices. Although this is seldom, we can only assign one of those zip codes to that segment. A best attempt is made to code each segment as accurate as the quality control at this level can be done.
