Specialty Maps are requests that will take some time to finish, County GIS staff charges $100 an hour (one hour minimum)*. It will be at the discretion of the County GIS staff if the map will be a specialty project or not. For example, a specialty map with aerial that took 1 hour would cost $125* ($100 for the hour, plus the cost of the 36 x 48 inches map with aerial). Specialty maps could include custom labeling, data manipulation, analytical, etc.
