|Home page for my county's gis website|
One of my readers expressed an interest in where I found the topo maps with the 2 foot elevation contours.
They are available on my county's GIS (Geographical Information System) website.
I generally go to the Gallery page
|Many, many choices|
|More often than not, I go to the general purpose map which offers several "base map" layers and "application" layers.|
|The applications layers button is the second button from the left. Clicking on that button will pop-up the menu shown. I turned on the 2ft elevation, Building Footprints and Hydrology flowlines and turned off parcels.|
|The base map layer button is the middle button (shown beneath the icon rich menu). I changed the base map to the 2015 Aerial Imagery. If you look at the actual map shown, you might recognize the site of the First Battle of Silver Creek described in the Seven Cows story.|
I think you are going to have to view the page source code and see what service they are accessing. The base-map ends at the county line but the topo lines are still shown after you scroll out of Eaton County.
I am 99% sure the person who asked me has at least one kid who has the computer savvy to do that.
