Map Milwaukee Applications

Map Milwaukee is no longer a single application, but is a suite of applications with targeted data and functionality.  Users still have the ability to add any available map layer to any of the map applications using the Add Map Layer tool*.  Users also have access to advanced tools including querying data, drawing, measuring distance and areas, and exporting data to a spreadsheet*.  Our goal is to provide map applications that provide useful data and are easy to use, while also providing advanced functionality for experienced or curious users.

New!  2015 aerial photos have been added as base maps to all Map Milwaukee applications.  Property Information now provides a decade of aerial photos: 2005, 2010, 2013, and 2015. (11/20/2015)

Software Requirement

New Map Milwaukee applications require the Silverlight plug-in for your browser.  If you do not already have Silverlight, you will be prompted to install it when you start the new Map Milwaukee application.  Or, you can verify and install/upgrade Silverlight on your system before launching a new Map Milwaukee application.

Known Bug in Windows 8

February, 2015: We have recently discovered that when adding map services as layers to Map Milwaukee applications on a Windows 8 device, Silverlight will crash.  This a known bug that currently does not have a solution.  We will be keeping track of this situation in anticipation of a solution.  Over the next year, we also have upgrades planned that should take Silverlight out of the equation.
