County announces mapping application

Clackamas County’s Department of Technology Services is excited to announce a major enhancement to its existing online mapping and land information Web application, CMap. 

            Need to find the assessed value of your property?  What school district and what schools serve your location?  What is the approximate elevation of your property?  What natural hazards might affect your property?  These questions and many more can be answered though CMap. 

            “While we have had CMap around for a long time, this new version really shows what our team of programmers can do with Open Source technologies,” said Dave Cummings, Clackamas County Chief Information Officer. “Using Open Source really provided the county some significant cost savings.”

            CMap allows users to retrieve assessment, service provider, and hazard information about a particular tax lot and provides a map and aerial photos. In addition, users can access the assessor’s parcel maps and selected survey documents. CMap is accessible from Clackamas County’s Internet site at http://cmap.clackamas.us/ 

            For questions, contact Eric Bohard, Clackamas County Technology Services, at (503) 723-4814 or by email at ericboh@co.clackamas.or.us.
