iMAPS Information

Wake County GIS and Raleigh GIS developed the iMAPS online interactive mapping application to provide easy access to reliable property information. Users can look up properties by owner name, address, place of interest or intersection and retrieve a variety of maps and property information. Help pages and videos are available to make iMAPS easy to use.

See FAQs for help to improve iMAPS performance.


 

iMAPS FAQ

Why can’t I find the specific Book of Maps (BOM) page where my lot/tract is located?

Wake County Register of Deeds began accepting electronic recording (eRecording) of plat/subdivision and condominium maps on September 1st, 2021. Survey maps with multiple pages that are filed electronically AND have more than one page are grouped into one document. They will now be recorded under the first page number of the multiple page series. 

To access the lot/tract of interest, you can:

  • Click the ‘Book of Maps’ link and scroll to view additional pages OR
  • Check the ‘Property Description’ field for the BOM page series reference 

Why is there a new version of iMAPS?

We strive to maintain a stable and reliable iMAPS application designed to be easy to use. From time to time, we need to update the application so that we can continue to support it and to provide new functions that customers have requested.

How do I change the map background?

- Background maps have been moved into the Basemaps panel in the bar on the right side. Click the button with the four squares, then select the Streets button at the top of the panel.

- Aerial photography is now found in the Basemaps panel on the right. Click the button with the four squares, then select the Imagery button at the top of the panel.

- Dark mode can be accessed from the menu in the upper right corner. Look for Theme and select Dark. iMAPS will remember this setting the next time you use it.
