Property Finder

Property Finder is an interactive map used to make Township Geographic information System (GIS) data available to the public. Information is displayed in the form of layers which can be turned on and off using the layer drop down menu. Data may be searched such as parcel ID number, address, property owner’s name, developments, and streets using specialized tasks. Other viewable data layers include aerial imagery, streets, parcels, developments, and base map layers.
