Loveland's mapping technology keeps on surprising us



Things keep changing with Loveland. The latest, apparently, is that Loveland now has the entire parcel layer and ownership info up for Wayne County — minus Dearborn. (What's up, Dogbone?) It's a remarkable resource, and Jerry Paffendorf deserves some solid thanks for providing a wealth of information, and a transparency the city often lacks, all as a side benefit of his work for the big boys. Have fun with this interactive property mapping system and find out who's behind on their taxes.

And Wayne County isn't the only view. Click on the state view for a few more counties.
