I am looking for Clark County Nevada Parcel GIS data. The data format can be in any type of geospatial format. shapefile,kml,geojson, etc...

Their county gis department has a ton of data http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/gis/services/Pages/FreeGISData.aspx but they do not seem to have parcel data for download. I have also OSM data for the entire state of nevada, which has a ton of data including building outlines, but I cannot find parcels.

I am getting the feel that I will have to pay for this data but I do not want to do this. If anybody knows of any resources how to obtain this data that would extremely helpful.

I know Python and can somewhat tinker with javascript so if there is a way to pull the data off the web I may be able to do that.

if you look at the highlighted section above the listings, there is a layers file download that has parcels.lyr in it.
beware: its not open data because arcgis esri isn't open source. you either have to use their software or find a way to convert it.
i know of a number of ways to get open data from esri, but have not found a good lyr file converter to date.
layers file

if you dig through the ftp site, you'll find crpcl...the pcl caught my eye. download the zip with shapefiles and xlsx with data definitions. that is parcel data too.

  • i have arcmap, i downloaded the link you provided but it has those red exclamation marks when I open the data. and there is no local data source to connect it to...

    i avoid arcgis and esri like the plague so i have no frame of reference to help you out. maybe ask the county? or go to gis.stackexchange.com and ask them. the data is there.
