The Maps-on-Demand interactive application provides a toolbox for the community to query and print predefined scaled maps to assist communities in community and comprehensive planning efforts. Mapped data can support planning efforts in housing, land use, natural resource, transportation, economic development, infrastructure, parks/trails/openspace, and cultural planning efforts.
The following procedures provide a step-by-step guide on how to create a map. The following link is a PDF to locate the area you are interested to query. Township-Range-Section Reference Guide and Locator Map
The scale is important since it sets the zoom view of whatever data you are looking for.
Search available themes and maps by 1/2 section (e.g. N, S)
Search available themes and maps by township and range
Search available themes and maps by a section
Search available themes and maps by city
Search available themes and maps by township name
Search available themes and maps at the county level
Select the area you are interested in, this will be based upon the Step 1 scale selection.
The selected area will be determined based upon the scale selected.
Select the theme you are interested in, this will be based upon the Step 2 area selection.
The available themes will be determined by both the scale and area that is selected. These themes are based upon general areas that communities need in planning efforts such as parcels, imagery, land use, public ownership, wetlands, and more.
