justice-smiles-green-large.pngWith your King County Parcel Number, now you can seek to gain an aerial view of your property in inquiry and see the rough – yes rough – contour(s) of what is presumed by the county auditor’s office to be the boundary lines associated with your property.

Now you will want to go to the King County iMap. Click on the green, “Start iMap” button in the center of the page. On the left side you will find a label called “Tools.” In the middle of this column of tools you will find “Property Search.” Click on that. At the bottom, you will be given an opportunity to enter your parcel number and then search.

Here (again) you will be given a skeletal map. Now go back up to the tools and figure out how you would like to expand the image to what you believe will be the appropriate. To do this, click first on the upper left magnifying glass with the “+” sign on it and then click the skeletal map. You might need to click the map two or three times until you have expanded it to a degree that it only encompases the properties of concern.

Also, if you would like to shift things in any direction – unfortunately, without an allowance for rotation – click on the “hand” icon and then click on the map and drag in the direction you would like the map to be rebuilt.

Once you have everything figured out, then go down to the bottom lower right and click on “Imagery.”

Now if it makes it easier, you can also click in the upper right on “parcel number lables” and “parcel address labels” so you have that information on this image and don’t have to otherwise flip back and forth for it.justice-smiles-green.png
