Browser and Operating System Version(s): County Mapper is best experienced using Chrome, Internet Explorer 10.0 or higher and Mozilla Firefox.
Property Boundary Alignment: Due to the variety of data sources and the manner in which data is input property boundaries may not exactly align with aerial imagery. Older data sources may be especially vulnerable. These areas of discrepancy are corrected as more reliable data becomes available.
