Community Maps


The Small Cities / Towns Web Mapping Project provides access to local map-based data through user friendly interactive web maps. Data such as zoning, property ownership, land use, and critical areas are available through the application. The application allows the user to select which map layers are displayed, has multiple base maps to choose from, and allows the user to print a simple map.
