The data source is the 2011 Shelby County GIS parcel file and the 2012 Fayette County GIS parcel file; land use GIS parcel files are not available for Desoto County. Shelby County data is available by living units (homes) and Fayette County data is only available at the parcel level. Please note for Fayette County that some parcels may include more than one home such as parcels with duplexes, condos, apartments, etc.
