Westport Property and GIS Maps Now On-Line

Citizens, town employees and other interested persons may now research properties in Westport by using the On-Line Property Viewer and the Interactive Mapping capability of the Town’s new Geographic Information System (GIS) website.  The site allows users to search for and display the assessor’s map of a parcel of land and to add additional information such as soil types, wetlands, zoning, and aerial photo’s to that map.  Users may also view an interactive map of the entire Town, adding their desired information, then ‘zooming’ to an area of interest.

The site includes a wide range of environmental and regulatory information.  The information is not to be used for legal determinations or to settle property disputes.  It will be useful to anyone interested in their own property, to anyone interested in developing a property, and to those interested in the physical and cultural characteristics of Westport.

The site is accessed via the links on the Planning Board website or directly at http://host.appgeo.com/westportma; a tutorial and tip sheet are also available.  The project, which will be improved and updated yearly, is a joint effort of the Planning Board and Board of Assessors, with funding from the Data Processing Department.  The website was developed by Applied Geographics, Inc.
