Important Notice for Map Milwaukee Users


Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox can no longer be used as web browsers when trying to access and utilize Map Milwaukee Applications.



What do you need to do?

You will need to use Internet Explorer to use the Map Milwaukee Applications.  If you already use Internet Explorer, you don't have to do anything - Silverlight and Map Milwaukee applications will continue to work in this browser.

What are we doing?

The City of Milwaukee GIS section is currently in the early phases of a project to implement a number of upgrades to our system.  As part of this process, we will be redesigning the Map Milwaukee applications so they will not require Silverlight to run (they will be designed for HTML5).  This project will be happening over the next year.

To date, we have chosen to create Map Milwaukee applications using Silverlight because it offered the most functionality for our applications.  The functionality gap is quickly closing between Silverlight and HTML5, and we plan to make the switch to HTML5.  This change will also enable Map Milwaukee to work on all devices - including tablets and phones - something we all want.

We will keep you informed as we make changes.  Information will be shared here in the Map Milwaukee Portal, in the Map Milwaukee Newsletter, and through E-Notify.

The bottom line:

Map Milwaukee applications will only work in Internet Explorer.
