SAN MIGUEL COUNTY – San Miguel County’s Geographic Information Systems Department is unveiling a major software upgrade to webMap, a public online mapping service that allows users to view information pertaining to land lots in San Miguel County. The upgrades include smartphone and tablet capabilities as well as the ability to print and save maps, create custom graphics and use advanced search features.
“The smartphone and tablet version has a simple interface and a lot of power,” said Heather Widlund, San Miguel GIS Coordinator. “The system upgrade will not change the program’s basic functions. Users in San Miguel County can still log on and search for specific land information.”
San Miguel County residents can use webMap software to find information pertaining to roads, trails and, where available, local land use information. The information found on the webMap system can also be viewed as text-based documents, but webMap cleanly organizes and presents the data using map images and other graphics. webMap can be used by visiting www.sanmiguelcounty.org/maps.
Training for the upgraded software happens at 335 W Colorado Ave., Telluride starting July 16. See the website mentioned above for training times and additional training date information.
