Instructions for Using the Interactive Map

Available information:

The interactive map shows information from the Snohomish County geographic information system (GIS). Please read the disclaimer.

Snohomish County provides this service to help citizens understand and comply with applicable federal regulations.

Map Navigation:

Choices on the left side of the screen determine what happens when you click on the map.

For example, click on the word "Zoom In", then click on the map to draw a new map at a larger scale. Hint: To zoom-in closer, click-and-hold the mouse button, then move your mouse to draw a box on the map.

Wait for the map to finish:

Drawing a map on your browser can take several seconds. The map must finish drawing before the next click will be accepted.
High-speed internet connections (e.g. cable or DSL) respond significantly faster than dial-up connections.

View the Aerial Photo

Near the bottom of the left side of the screen, you can choose to Show or Hide the aerial photo in the background on the map.

The aerial photos in the Paine Field vicinity were taken Thursday, September 19th, 2013. Other parts of Snohomish County were taken on Saturday, May 26, 2012.

Browser compatibility:

A recent browser (Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 7.0 or greater) is recommended to view the interactive map.

In general, your browser must not block pop-up (new) windows, must show pictures, enable JavaScript, and be able to send unencrypted information (form data) over the Internet.

Refer to Snohomish County's browser compatibility and web site accessibility.

Computer settings:

Some computer settings can prevent the map from working correctly.
Common problems include:

  • Pop-up blockers
    Description: The interactive map doesn't launch at all; or new browser windows do not display when using 'Create Report'.
    What to do: If you have pop-up blocker software, allow County web pages to open new (pop-up) windows. For example, the Google toolbar allows pop-up windows if the CTRL key is held down when clicking a link.

  • Browser settings
    Description: The interactive map window doesn't finish loading, or is stuck on 'Retrieving Data' with no map displayed.
    What to do: Enable JavaScript, show pictures, enable nonencrypted form data to be sent, allow popup windows.

  • Hidden windows
    Description: The information window does not display on the second or third time clicking on the map.
    What to do: The window with permit information may be hidden behind the window showing the map. Keep both windows visible to facilitate viewing for either one.

  • Error messages
    Description: A browser error message appears when clicking on the map that says "Unable to display MapService".
    What to do: Close the interactive map browser window and delete Temporary Internet Files from your system. Internet Explorer can do this under the 'Tools > Internet Options...' menu. The error message should not reappear the next time you open the interactive map.

If you are still experiencing technical problems, feel free to contact the Website Coordinator with questions or suggestions.
