  • MapGuide in a Minute

    Start by going to Pima County MapGuide Maps. Review the introductory links on that page and then pick "Main MapGuide Map" to see the main map and then get started with MapGuide:  

    1. The best way to zoom in is to pick the zoom tool (magnifying glass with + ), release the mouse button, and then drag a box over the desired map area by holding down the left mouse button.
    2. More layers appear in the legend on the left as you zoom in.
    3. Click the check box next to a layer in the legend to turn the layer on or off.
    4. Move the mouse cursor over a map feature to identify the feature.
    5. If the cursor changes to a pointing hand over a map feature (mostly parcels), double-click for more information on that feature. This opens a new window. Return to the map by closing the new window. (Click on the "X" in the upper right hand corner of the new window.)
    6. Select parcels or streets by clicking or shift-clicking on them and use View Reports on the MapGuide toolbar to get reports on the selected map features.
    7. Hold the mouse over other MapGuide toolbar tools to see what they do.
    8. Use the right mouse button in the map area for more functions, including printing your map view.
    9. To print the map, right-click in the map area and then select "Print Current View" from the popup menu. The browser's Print button and menu options won't print the map.
