Due to compatibility issues we have decided to focus our support
efforts more toward the Adobes PDF file format, we still do
provide access to Autodesks DWG and DWF file formats. Please
refer to the Autodesk
web site for more information on their line of products. To

Parcel Segregation: The parcels shown are Assessor tax parcels.
They were created for the County
represent tax segregations. They do not represent "buildable
lots". For example, if a parcel is placed in the "open
space taxation program", it may be segmented into two pieces.
One piece is taxed for "open space" while the other is
reserved for "residential" use. This shows up as a parcel
with a boundary line separating the different tax designations.
Layer Standards and Map Legends: Our maps are created using
a layered approach. Each layer has a specific color, line type,
and name. This allows us to build maps quickly while keeping a standard
look and feel. If you are interested in getting a description of
each layer, you can view our "Layer Standards"
(PDF) section by clicking here. Also,
you may be interested in viewing our Assessor map legend, which
quickly shows each map feature. Click here to view the legend.
Map Accuracy Warning: These maps
were created from available public records and existing map sources
not from field surveys. Map features from all sources have been
adjusted to achieve a best-fit registration to the Ownership Parcels
map. While great care was taken in this process, maps from different
sources rarely agree as to the precise location of geographic features.
The relative positioning of map features to one another results
from combining different map sources without field ground truthing.
THIS MAP IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR FIELD SURVEY.
