How To

Where do I find the property report information for a property?

To open a property report for a parcel, do the following:

  • Search for the property by entering text into the Search widget’s text box and click “Search”
  • When the list of search results displays, look for  a picture (icon) of a folder with a piece of paper inside.  This should be positioned at the bottom-left of each search result, and when you move your mouse over the folder it should say “Property Report”

property-report

  • Click on the folder icon.  A new window will open, displaying the property report for the selected parcel
  • To print the report, click on the right-most tab (called “Print”) at the top of the property report.  Select the options you’d like to print, and click “Print”
What should I do if the site is blank or doesn’t load?

Sometimes, during odd hours of the day, the website may take longer to load or cache data.

If the site is simply blank and doesn’t appear to be loading, try pressing Ctrl+R to refresh your browser screen and wait for the browser to load the application again.

In other cases, while zooming in to a parcel or viewing a new part of the map, the server will take extra time to build the imagery that you are using.  Though rare, it may take 2-3 minutes for the imagery to complete drawing.

Why did the Aerial Imagery disappear?

Zooming-in (closer than 1:2,257) to a rural portion of the image will require that detailed imagery be added to the map. The creation of this imagery may take 1 to 5 minutes. Once the imagery is created for this location, the imagery will draw at all scales. If you cannot wait, refresh your browser and zoom-in again.

Why does the Streets background turn blue?

The Streets background is generally unavailable at scales less than 1:4,514. Zoom out press the Imagery button.

Why does the Streets background say Map data not yet available?

The Streets background is generally unavailable at scales less than 1:4,514. Zoom out or press the Imagery button.

How can I resize a widget?

Click and Drag the lower right corner of the Widget to the desired size.

What happened to my layer?

The layers in the map are designed to draw at appropriate scales. Using the Layers Widget expand the layer by clicking on the + and if the Check Box check mark is checked but grey try zooming in until the Check Box check mark turns black.

Use the Keyboard

Below are some common keyboard shortcuts that can be used in order to navigate the map easier and more efficiently:

  • Pan - You can pan (or move the map) by pressing the up, down, left, and right arrow keys. Also, pressing left+up at the same time will move northwest, left+down moves southwest, right+up moves northeast, and right+down moves southeast.
  • Zoom In - Press the + key to zoom in at the center of the map.
  • Zoom Out - Press the - key to zoom out at the center of the map.

  • Zoom In - You can zoom the map by double-clicking the mouse. The map will zoom at the location of the mouse click. You can also zoom in by scrolling the mouse wheel at a particular location. To zoom on a specific rectangular location, hold down Shift, then click and drag the mouse across the map. A rectangle will be drawn, and when you release the mouse and keyboard, the map will zoom to fit inside of the rectangle that was drawn.
  • Zoom Out - You can zoom out by holding down Alt and double-clicking the mouse at the same time. You can also zoom out by scrolling the mouse wheel backwards at a particular location. To zoom out of a particular location, hold down Alt+Shift, then click and drag the mouse across the map. A rectangle will be drawn, and when you release the mouse and keyboard, the map will zoom out to view the rectangle that was drawn.

Search Tips:

  • Omit Ordinal Suffixes - an ordinal suffix is the characters displayed after a number to indicate the rank of a number with respect to some order, e.g. the "st" in "1st", or (nd, rd, th). Don't include these suffixes in your address search term
  • Be General - if no search results display for your search term, try leaving parts of your search out to retrieve more general results.  For example, if the search term "1401 N 17 Ave" is unsuccessful, try searching using only the house number, “1401”
