FAQ & Help
A: Signing up is quick. Begin by logging in to your account. Once logged in, just perform a search or identify a parcel on the map. Then a box will appear that offers the two choices:
Day-Pass or Subscription
Once you click on which type of access you prefer, complete payment using PayPal (subscriptions require creation of a PayPal Account). Once payment is completed, you will be re-directed back to your search and your access will begin. An alternate signup is also available by clicking on the Account link and then Sign Up under Site subscription transactions.
A: On the map tab, the button will generate an Adobe .pdf file that you can directly print, download, mark-up, and share through email. This map will have either an Aerial Image background or a street map background depending on the layers you have turned on when you click the print button. We have aerial imagery for all 50 states, so printing maps and reports with the Aerial imagery can make an excellent exhibit. Additional information on the subject parcel is included in tabular format with the map.
A: Yes. There are a few ways to search for multiple records at the same time. For starters, using the semicolon ; as a separator, multiple owner names, addresses, and parcel numbers can be searched. Example " 550 Main St; Broadway" will return both results, which in this case are specifically 550 Main St and any address along the street named Broadway. Next is the * symbol, which can be a wild-card for names. Search Smith* and you will get results of any name beginning with those letters as well as additional letters that fall after the * symbol. Some examples would be Smith, Smithers, Smitherington etc. Parcel Numbers can be searched by separating unique numbers with the semicolon ; but the * symbol will not work for this type of search.
A: The Identify button is a powerful tool that allows the user to examine the specific details of a particular feature. To identify a feature, make sure the layer is turned on in the layer list on the left panel on the page. Once it is on, the identify tool button can be clicked on to select the layer you wish to identify. Click on the map over the target feature to activate. The tool defaults to the parcel layer so you may wish to change the active layer from the drop down list in the button. Some layers default in the off position, so make sure the layer is on before engaging the identify tool. Once identified, a feature may have additional information appear in the upper left panel, such as a link to county specific records on a government web page. See Identify Examples below.
A: The Flood Maps are available for over 2,100 counties across the U.S. To display the maps, make certain you are zoomed in enough to enable the check box(FEMA DFIRM Flood Maps). Once the check box is enabled the maps will draw. On larger display monitors, you will need to reduce the size of your browser window to a smaller size (a horizontal/width less than 16 inches will typically work) A fix for this issue is under way.
A: You have a short project or a need to perform some property research? Try out Day-Pass access. It will let you utilize the site for 24 hours without any subscription commitment. Once payment is made, access is instant- so you can jump right in and get started!
A: Some of our county data sets are more complete than others. In many cases we have deep rich data that will allow you to search by all kinds of information. In other cases, we may only have the parcel ID as a searchable record, and we try to direct link (activate by a click on the parcel number) to public record sources to provide users with additional information.
A: Many of the map layers are too complex to draw at a small scale and other layers are too broad or coarse to show at close scales, so some limitations are placed on the layer. Layers like parcels, parcel labels, census blocks, census block groups, and streets only display at closer (larger) scales, whereas Layers like satellite imagery and USGS Topographical maps will display at moderate to small scales. Some layers that are important to scale are: Parcels, Parcel Labels, Zoning, Wetlands, Soils, Flood Zones, USGS Topo maps, FEMA Flood Maps, State and County Specific layers such as Lot Dimensions, Building Footprints, and Utilities.
A: Yes! Many of the counties have direct links to source records for their counties. Simply click on the parcel number of a result record and you will be linked directly to that record on the county's official web-site. Also, each record has a DATA button that you can click on to navigate to specific source records. These links will not only take you to the county's web site, but to the specific property you requested!
A: Yes, you can recover your password by visiting the login page and clicking on the link "Forgot your password?"
A: Simply run a search to access the results. A link to export all the records will appear and take you to a checkout screen. We use PayPal to process your order securely, and the data you need is available to download instantly!
A: This multi-user or enterprise signup will let a single user order multiple subscriptions. To begin, please log in to your account or create one if you have not already signed up. Once you are at the prompt to sign up for monthly access, locate the empty text box right underneath the price. Once there, you can specify additional usernames that will be managed under this single account. Separate each additional username with a comma. Each additional username will show the automatically adjusted price in the total amount. This will allow for one payment to process multiple users, so there is no need to set up payment for each individual user account. Please note that the user that creates the subscription will be the "Parent" account, and each additional account username added will not have administrative access. Please contact us for additional questions on enterprise account management.
