How to Use the Maps

Using the Maps for Maricopa County

When you go to the Maricopa County Assessor's web site you can look at maps and aerial photo's for any area in the County. When you go to this site, the program should load a viewer program the first time, then go in and display a county map. To locate a specific parcel, you can input the parcel number on the right side of the page in the "Search By" box and it will then zoom in to that specific parcel. Or you can use the zoom in and zoom out buttons at the top left side of the page. The maps starts out using "Assessor's Basemap", but you can see aerial photos by clicking the "BaseMaps" box area on the top right side of the page to view aerial photos or choose the floodplain selection to see what areas are impacted by floodplain or floodway. The specific information on parcels appears on the left side of this window, but you can close it if you want. And you an use the Print function if you want to save and print maps.

The same process applies when you go the web site for the Maricopa County Flood Control District to look at the flood plain maps. This program uses the same viewer as the County Assessor's Site, so you can go in and click on the area that says "Business", then the area that says "Maps and Services", then choose "Current &Pending 100 Year FEMA Floodplain Maps", and a map of the county will appear. You will need to use the "zoom in" icon and place it on the map where you want to zoom in and click - you zoom in. And the more you click, the closer you zoom in. Go to the "Layers & Legend" area on the page, and turn on the "Parcels" switch, and you can then see the parcel numbers on the map. Definitive determinations on specific lots can be obtained from this Department if you call that department and give them a specific parcel number.
