Alright, so maybe I’m a day late to this one, but I haven’t seen it very well publicized, and I’m on the parcel lookup page nearly every day! MapWashtenaw is just dang cool! It maybe a little cumbersome, but the results are pretty spiffy.
MapWashtenaw allows the user to search for a parcel of property in nearly anyway imagineable. Don’t know the parcel number, search by address. Don’t know the address, search by owner name. Don’t know the owner name, zoom into the street level, with satellite images on, and select the parcel next to the landmark you recognize.
They have, of course, melded the parcel information with the image and street map! Sweet mother of Moses, if this isn’t awesome! Good use of GIS technology. Now, if they would only make the GIS platform Firefox friendly…..
