Bend Oregon Online Mapper (BOOM) Help

Thank you for trying our online mapping application. We hope using it will be easy and intuitive, but we do have this basic help guide for your assistance. This is a general guide and pictures may not match the application exactly as you see it, but the functionality should be similar.

Basic tips to get started:

- To zoom the map you can use your mouse wheel, double-click the mouse, or pinch to zoom on mobile.

- The search box searches for addresses, roads, taxlot#, businesses, parks, and schools. When the search completes you can click on a result in the left hand side to zoom to it on the map.

- You can click on the map at any time to view a quick map tip of information for property boundaries, roads, parks, and the Water & Sewer utility maps  (*layer has to be visible for map tip to appear)

- Only a few layers have quick map tip. To find information for other layers use the blue ‘I want to…’ button and choose an option.

- Quickly turn on or change aerial imagery using the basemap icon at the lower left corner of the map.

- To print a map click the blue ‘I want to…’ button and choose print.

- The toolbar has a number of different tools available for navigation, finding data, measuring, and drawing graphics.

- Use the panel actions drop down menu to access different options and functions. Options change depending on what is currently in the panel below it (see 2nd image - list results layout below)

- You can export your search results to Excel if you like.  You will find this option under the panel actions menu.
