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.
