The following will assist you in using the Community Mapper:
- The Community Mapper is fully accessible over the Internet; however, it will work best with a high-speed Internet connection.
- You can use any web browser, but you will need to have the latest version of Java and Adobe Flash Player installed for best results.
- Clear your web browser's cache occasionally to ensure that you are seeing the most up to date information. This is done through the Tools tab (Firefox) or Internet Options (Internet Explorer).
- Practice using the tools provided so that you will become familiar with the features such as panning (moving left, right, up or down) and zooming (making the image appear closer or farther away).
- The Layers button under the Tools tab contains the mapping data that can be turned on and off or viewed with other layers. Simply click the box of the data layer that you want to view so that a checkmark appears. This will cause that data to appear on the map.
- Examples of layers include parcels, public lands, subdivisions, commissioner districts, voter precincts, zoning, grazing allotments, hunting units, FEMA flood zones, wilderness, government buildings, parks, etc.
- Use the transparency tool to adjust the layer to see other underlying images and data.
- Try Parcel by Click by selecting it from under the Locations tab. This will display data such as the name, size of parcel, etc.
- You can print a map by using the print function from within your web browser.
