Henderson County advocates the use of metadata. GIS metadata is detailed descriptive information about GIS data.
Metadata includes information about: the source of the data, its creation date and format, its projection, scale, resolution, accuracy, reliability and other information.
Henderson County provides metadata for base layers in *.XML format, which is viewable in a web browser or ArcCatalog.

Not all of our data layers have metadata on this site. If you are interested in metadata for other layers please contact us to request them.
Metadata for layers not maintained by Henderson County: The County uses layers maintained by other sources including the State of North Carolina, the USGS, and other agencies. Click here for further information.
