Map Disclaimers

We are discussing various map disclaimer options in hopes of standardizing our cartographic products. I am wondering if you could direct us to any useful resources and/or industry standards regarding map liability especially at the county level. Thank you.

Mapping Center Answer:

Of course, you can take a look at various examples that exist for a variety of maps.  Most will carefully state something like the following:

The producer of the map assumes no responsibility for the risks, dangers, and liability that may result from the reader's use of the map.

Of course, it would be prudent to consult with your legal council about the wording you use for your maps.
