Layers Scheduled for Removal
February 11, 2015: We have removed City Maintained Lots and Nonassessable Sidewalks from Old Map Milwaukee. These layers are now available in the DPW_operations map service and the new Map Milwaukee application available in the Map Milwaukee Portal.
February 13, 2015: The following layers have been removed from Old Map Milwaukee:
- Land Use (from the Property Data folder in the layer list)
- Historic Preservation
- Historic sites
- National historic districts
- Local historic districts
- Historic areas
The land use group lyaer can now be added to the new Map Milwaukee applications by adding the parcels_mprop map service.
The historic preservation layers can be found in the Special_Districts map service.
Refer to the tip sheet, How to Add Map Services, for help adding map layers to any Map Milwaukee application.
Map Milwaukee Portal
We have a number of new online map applications and map services that will eventually replace this "old" version of Map Milwaukee. These new applications and services can be found in the Map Milwaukee Portal. As these new applications and services replicate map layers found in the old application, we will remove the duplicate map layers from "Old" Map Milwaukee. We will give notice when map layers will be removed from Old Map Milwaukee. These notices can be found on the Map Milwaukee Portal, and in our monthly Map Milwaukee newsletter. Current newsletters can be found on the Map Milwaukee Portal page. The portal also provides a link to newsletter archives as well as instructions on how to subscribe to the Map Milwaukee newsletter via e-mail through Milwaukee's E-Notify service.
We encourage you to start using the new Map Milwaukee applications in place of "Old" Map Milwaukee as soon as possible.
Tips sheets on how to use the new Map Milwaukee applications are available in the Newsletters and Tip Sheets section of the Map Milwaukee Portal.

Note on Pop-Up Blockers
For the Print function in Map Milwaukee to work properly, you will need to disable pop-up blockers for this site. If you would like to add an exception to your pop-up blocker settings, add gis.milwaukee.gov. We have found this to be a potential issue for both Google and the Windows XP SP2 pop-up blockers.
If you continue to have problems using the print function, try holding down the Ctrl button on your keyboard while simultaneously clicking on the "Create Print Page" button.
For best results your Display Adapter setting should be set to a resolution of 1024 x 768, and you should maximize your browser window.
If you experience any difficulties with the application, or have any questions please email the GIS department.
