Topographic Map Gallery Help
There are three ways to select a particular topographic map to view:
- Find by Property Index Number (PIN)
Enter the 10 digit PIN for the parcel of interest, do not use dashes or other punctuation. Click on Display. You must enter all ten digits.
- Find by Property Location Address
You must enter the street number and street name, and then select a city/zip combination from the drop-down list. Street Direction and Street Type are optional. You must enter an exact street number and street name. Click on Display.
- Find by Specific Map Page Number
Each contour map has a unique page number in the upper right corner of the page. If you know the specific page you want to view, select a township, range, section, quarter section, and optionally a second quarter section from the drop-down list and click on Display.

The free Adobe Acrobat Reader extension is required to view the map images. Adobe Acrobat Reader is free software you can download via the link to the right.
Parcel maps can be very detailed with small sized text occurring frequently. Use of a 17” or larger monitor and a resolution of 800x600 or better will aid in map comprehension. Users may wish to maximize their screen before entering the site.
Maps can ONLY be printed directly from the Adobe Acrobat Reader extension rather than the printing capability provided by the browser. Using the Acrobat Reader print button should produce a map that fills an entire 8.5 x 11 piece of paper in landscape orientation.
Portions of the parcel images can be copied from Adobe Acrobat reader and pasted in word processing documents. For details on this please refer to the Adobe web site listed to the right.
The map images are in Adobe PDF format and range in size from 1 MB to 3.5 MB. Some factors which may influence the speed of the display on your computer include your system memory, your connection speed and the other applications you have running.
