Searching for an Address to Find Boundaries

  2. Type in the address or location you are interested in and select the correct suggestion from the drop-down list that appears.
  3. The map will automatically zoom in to the selected location. A marker or temporary point will be placed at the searched address on the map.
  4. An information window will pop up, detailing all the boundaries that include the selected address or point. If no boundaries are defined for that location, no boundary details will show.

Identifying Boundaries through Map Right-Click

  1. Navigate within your Mapulus map to the general area of interest.
  2. Right-click on the specific location on the map where you wish to learn about surrounding boundaries.
  3. A temporary marker will appear upon right-clicking, and an information window will automatically open.
  4. This information window will display all the boundaries encompassing where you clicked. If no boundaries are defined for that location, then no boundary details will show.

For both address searching and right-clicking methods, the information provided will include the names and details of the boundaries, giving you instant insight into the location’s zoning, jurisdiction, or any other pertinent boundary information available on your Mapulus map layers.

Viewing Boundary Names for a Searched Address
