Kitsap County releases new parcel search application

Kitsap County has released a new version of its online parcel search. “Many of the enhancements that the public and county staff requested, such as a larger map view and multiple data layers, are now available,” said Diane Mark, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) manager. The existing parcel search application, which has been in use since 2002, is based on older GIS software technology and needed to be replaced.

The new Parcel Search application provides all the existing capabilities and adds many new features. The map screen is now a full-screen map, and maps can now be printed to portable document format (PDF). Users can draw shapes and text on the maps that show up when maps are printed. Imagery is available from 2012, 2009, 2007, 2005, 2001 and 1994, which helps users see how parcels and areas have changed over the years. There are also several layers to choose from to display on the map including the Comprehensive Plan, critical areas, county utilities, critical aquifers, shoreline management and more.

“Adding these enhancements helps residents find information they need and increases the usefulness of parcel search applications,” Mark added. Users can access the parcel search from the county’s home page (www.kitsapgov.com) or go to https://psearch.kitsapgov.com/webapp/.

Kitsap County’s GIS Division provides core services and resources to county departments, regional entities and the public. Services include development, maintenance and distribution of enterprise-based and business-driven spatial data, applications and mapping. In collaboration with other divisions and departments, the division provides GIS environment customization, web-based map and data development, and ongoing GIS application support.
