The Ventura County Assessor's Office maintains assessment records of real and personal property in the County. Many of these records are available for sale. This data is available in several formats (i.e., .txt, .xls, .pdf, etc. and deliverable by CD-Rom, email attachments, FTP, etc.). In a joint effort, the Office of the Assessor and the Ventura County Geographical Information System (GIS) also offers GIS READY map base data. Data can be sent via e-mail or FTP; this data consists of shape files - any attribute data must be arranged through the Assessor's Office.
