Features and Functions of

Clallam County Parcel and Critical Areas Map

 

This map shows county base map layers, like roads, boundaries and sections.

When zoomed in to at least 1:125,000 scale, the county zoning layer appears.

When zoomed in to at least 1:50,000 scale, the Critical Area layers appear.

When zoomed out to scales beyond 1:2,000,000, a graphic of the world from space appears keeping Clallam County in context at any scale.

Several other layers are available by checking the square box in the layer list to make them visible.

Between 1:100,000 and 1:3,000 scales, a detailed hill shading image is available on portions of the map.

Between 1:30,000 and 1:1,000 scales, Aerial Photo images are available. (year 2000 photography)

 

Selecting Map Layers:

At scales where the Critical Areas are visible, there are locations where the map can be very busy. To see some layers better, you can turn other layers off by clicking in the square box next to the layer name in the Layers list at the bottom right section of the screen. A check in the box means the layer will be visible. To make changes effective, click the Refresh button at the top of the Layers list.

Zooming to a specific scale or location:

When the map first appears, the Zoom In tool is active. Clicking on the screen will zoom you in by half to that location. Using it to draw a box on the screen will zoom you to that box.
You can zoom to several pre-selected locations by selecting from the Zoom to… box at the top right corner, above the legend. (Scroll to see the entire list.)
The current map scale is shown in the scale box at the bottom right corner of the screen. To change to a specific scale, enter a new number in the box, and click Go. The map scale is represented by a ratio, such as 1:24,000, (24,000 will appear in the box) which means that 1 inch on the map represents 24,000 inches on the ground. The larger the number in the box, the smaller each feature is (small scale), and the more land is visible on the map. A smaller number makes features larger (large scale), with less land visible.
The  ;Pan tool will drag the map view to cover an adjacent area
The ;Back to Last Extent button will return you to your previous location and scale.

Finding an Address Location:

Click the Locate Address tool, and fill in the box. The “Zone:” field is the zip code. This can be important if the road name has been used on more than one road in the county.
The map will center on a dot, labeled with the address. This is the approximate point where the driveway leaves the road.
To remove the dot, click the Clear Selection button.

Finding a Parcel by Assessor Parcel Number:

Type parcel number into Zoom to Parcel box at bottom of screen, and click Go.
If the parcel exists on the map, the parcel info will show in a data window, then the map will center on the parcel, and it will be highlighted in yellow.
To remove the yellow highlighting, click the Clear Selection button.
