Buncombe County GIS updates PIN numbers

The Parcel Identification numbers (PIN) for each parcel are generated from the State Plane Coordinates for each parcel. In the past, this has been done using State Plane NAD 27.  The county has just converted all PIN numbers to reflect the more accurate and up-to-data datum - NAD 83. All PIN numbers have been converted and are available today.  For more information - check the county website here:
