    MapGuide Tips

    Searching for a location by address

    (multiple search manners exist of which one is here presented).

    • Enter the address number in the box at the top of the screen and click the “Adr Num” button
    • Scroll though the list to locate the street name and click “OK”
    • This brings your site into view (hovering the cursor will display site addresses)

    Moving around in the map

    To move around in the map, click the hand icon at the top left of the screen, then click back on the map (holding down the mouse button) and drag the map to a side. You may zoom in and out by rolling the mouse button. Once you have the view you wish to see, remember to click back on the arrow icon next to the hand one so as to be able to select map features.

    Using the legend

    • Layers to be displayed on the map may be activated by checking the boxes on the left of the map view.
    • Certain layers may not display in the legend until you zoom into the map
    • Layers are organized alphabetically by points, lines, polygons and finally imagery features
    • Layers higher in the list may obstruct layers further down
    • If you cannot identify the layer features you wish, unselect the “Parcels” box at the top of screen and hover the cursor on the target area.

    Displaying parcel information

    Double clicking on any parcel will bring up a parcel page containing links to information such as:
    • Assessor information
    • Subdivision plat
    • Building permits
    • Imagery
    • Pima County zoning designation (with link to the appropriate Zoning Code section)
