Why do you you need to know which city your are currently in?

  • determine applicable laws or orders based on jurisdiction
  • determine if you’re in your city-based sales territory
  • record city information when conducting field research
  • perform volunteer work
  • emergency dispatch
  • know what city you are in when house hunting
  • calculate the correct sales tax, where being in an incorporated city vs unincorporated area can make a big difference
  • determine jurisdiction
  • note the city when doing various hobbies such as geocaching

Coverage Notes

  • US coverage includes Counties in all 50 states plus Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa
    “Show US city limits” draws all incorporated cities and towns in the United States and its territories and possessions
    “Show US townships” draws all minor civil divisions (MCDs) (these are often townships)

Other Notes

  • The Search places box uses a standard Google Maps geocoding engine, therefore you can type street addresses, road names, points of interest, and GPS coordinates
  • Many of the map layers from which this information is extracted are very large, so it may take several seconds for all of the map layers to finish drawing
  • Because the map layers are large, boundaries will not be shown if you are zoomed out too far
  • Note that typing an address will zoom in the map very close, whereas typing a city or county by itself will show you a map with a wider view
  • Disclaimer: While the number of decimals in the latitude and longitude displayed for the map marker imply a positional accuracy of within a few feet, note that Google Maps is not inherently that accurate, and therefore this tool should not be used for legal purposes or anything beyond entertainment value.
