On-line Interactive Maps

at maps.orem.org

Each interactive map has a link to a help page which will instruct you on what each mapping tool does and how to use it. Some tools are common to all maps, such as zooming in and out, panning, and zooming to an address. Each map has multiple layers that visitors can turn on and off. Maps may also be printed.

"Where I Live" Map
http://maps.orem.org/WhereILive
The purpose of this map is to help citizens, and future citizens, know more about the neighborhoods in which they live. After zooming in to an area, visitors can use the Location Information tool and click on a parcel. A PDF report will open containing information about that parcel's neighborhood, such as zone, land use, school boundaries, crime statistics, and links to contact information for all the elected officials for that spot of land, from Mayor to President of the United States. Of all the interactive maps, this one is the most popular.
Tree Map
http://maps.orem.org/Trees
The purpose of this map is to allow you to explore the wide array of trees maintained by Orem City's Forester, Marty Sheide. Use the Zoom In tool to hone in on an area, such as a park, near your home, or place of work. Click the Identify Tool, then click a tree. A small pop-up bar will appear. Expand the pop-up bar to see information about the tree, such as species, trunk diameter, and estimated value.
Development Tracking System Map
http://maps.orem.org/DevTrack
The purpose of this map is two-fold: Visitors can zoom to an area, then use the Area Project Query tool to find the names of projects going on (or completed) in that location. This is helpful when construction is visible in the city, but its origins are unknown. The second purpose is to highlight project areas of projects in the on-line Development Tracking System. Projects can be found by name, type, or meeting date. Project pages contain links that bring you back to the Map and highlight the area in question.
Ditchmaster Map
http://orem.org/storm-sewer/irrigation
Developers and Engineers can use this map to find contact information for irrigation ditches in the city. Visitors can either click on a canal or choose one from the list. Either way, the map will zoom to show the entire run of the ditch and contact information will appear below the map.
