When the screen first appears, there are four large scroll icons on the upper left of the screen. Above them is a "Basemap Blender" or slider and to the left is the "Zoom Tool" scale which is used to move in or away on from the map.

DRAWING TOOL TO MEASURE DISTANCES
3. Click on the Redlining tool to draw a straight line.
4. Position the cursor over the beginning point of of the line and left click ONCE.
5. Position the cursor to the end point of the line and left click TWICE. The distance from the beginning to the end is calculated and displayed.

You can search for a specific property. All information comes from the Hamilton County Auditor's Office. Enter the property owner's name in the box at the top of the screen. The system will go directly to that property and the property lines will be highlighted in a light blue color. In addition, a Property Report will be displayed.
There are many other options available so experiment to discover the full capabilities of this mapping system.
