Mapping it out

Palo Pinto County’s online Mapbook goes live

By TODD GLASSCOCK

If you need to get anywhere within Palo Pinto County, the county has unfolded the perfect tool – a new online map book.

Developed by the county’s 911 Addressing Coordinator Teresa Gilbreath, the map book contains some of the most accurate data available for general as well as emergency use.

“We’ve built in about 3,500 clickable links,” Gilbreath said of the map’s capabilities.

The map is easily used, she said, and can be accessed online or downloaded as a PDF file. The map is available through the county’s website at www.co.palo-pinto.tx.us by clicking the Mapbook 2014 link.

Users can view, save or print the map according to the use agreement on the site, she said. A bound book version of the map is available for order from the county’s homepage for $50 by going to the Other County Offices/911Coordinator link.

She said anyone wanting to buy a book should try the online version before investing in a printed copy. 

Users navigate the map by clicking on an index of street names linked to a list of streets, roads and locations found within the map’s grid system.

If you want to dig up the whereabouts of Oyster Bay in Possum Kingdom, for instance, you click the street listings for Oyster-Porter, which leads you then to page 14B and grid location 14D, a click away on the index link. Click that link and you are taken to the area map that shows Oyster Bay.

The first thing users will find is a numbered grid map of the county where you can click inside sections to go to a specific map.

The online and PDF versions both have clickable links as well as a search box and the PDF allows users to navigate with up and down arrows and add bookmarks, Gilbreath said.
