 Online Map

Our current mapping system obtains data from our in house server.  This means that any data found within the online map is the most current data available at RAPC. RAPC does not handle any parcel data for Rapides Parish. For any questions on parcel data, please contact the Rapides Parish Tax Assessor.


See disclaimer below

The Online GIS is a free public service. Maps are updated on a daily basis through GPS field verifications, historical maps, use of general public and office personnel with specific knowledge of areas within Rapides Parish.  If any information you find that needs updating please send a quick email explaining in detail of the change needed to Jamie Wallace.
