Information page for the CVTGIS viewer
The CVTGIS viewer provides access to the latest parcel maps and property data available from Washtenaw County through an interactive map viewer. The viewer shows a variety of property data for the entire county including parcels, aerial photos, topography, schools, and natural features.
This site requires Silverlight from Microsoft. Silverlight is a cross-platform plugin that works in all browsers, on a Mac or a PC (Linux coming soon via Moonlight 4). If you do not have Silverlight installed you will receive an installation prompt
To check if you have MS Silverlight installed, go to Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs, and look for Microsoft Silverlight in the programs listing. If you do not have Silverlight installed do one of the following:
IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO WASHTENAW COUNTY'S DOMAIN -- add Silverlight by going to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> Add New Programs (on the left-hand side), then find Microsoft Silverlight from the list and click Add.
IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE WASHTENAW COUNTY'S DOMAIN -- Please visit Silverlight.net to get installation instructions.
