Interactive Map Help

Interactive Map Development

Online interactive maps on the City of West Allis website are developed using ESRI's ArcGIS Server Version 10 and .NET Technology by City of West Allis staff.

Within each interactive map is a link to documentation that provides basic information on how to identify features, navigate the site using the specific tools offered, search for features, measure distances or areas, working with layers and map contents, along with information on retrieving and printing detailed data.

For the best results when using this interactive mapping site, we recommend the following minimum system settings on your computer:

  • Cable or DSL Internet Connection
  • Browser Internet Explorer version 6.0 or higher
  • Disable any Pop-Up blocking software
  • Display: 17" monitor or larger
  • Screen Resolution set at 1024 x 768 or higher
  • Adobe Flash Player 8 or higher
  • Acrobat Reader 9.0
