I’m lucky In my computer business that I see different professions and learn some of their tools. One of my computer clients is a land surveyor and they showed me a helpful web site a few years ago. He uses it to research a property before he visits on site to do the survey. It’s called iMap of Allen County, IN and it has digital maps, property reports, property records, tax information and zoning information.
It’s a fascinating site and shows all the streets, buildings and ownership for all of Allen County, IN. One of the neatest features is the historical view where you can see what an area looked liked from overhead from 1938 to present as you move a slider. Check it out and let me know how you like it. All this data is public record and the site is free.
