Are there any websites that will give you free aerial maps along with property lines that you can print out also does anyone know of any sites that have maps with birds eye view and property lines that you can print out for free.
Thanks

Don't trust the PL on aerial maps, they can be off a good bit.  I just finished a project where I used a GPS to map the roads and PL on a large property in Garrett County and found that the state lines, county lines and such varied in accuracy on goggle maps.

It can give you an idea, but only ground work will find the line within a few feet or closer.  The best maps to start with in finding the PL is the tax maps at the county court house.

If you need help with a PL project, let me know, I might be able to help.

I just use google earth, and draw my own lines based on the plot map of the property.

Heres a little trick i do: (Although it doesn't help you out with propoerty lines)
Got to Bing.com
Pull up your map.
Click on "Bird's Eye View"
Now, you can't print that, BUT, you know that little button on your keyboard that says "Print Screen"? We've all pushed it with nothing happening right?
Well, with your map screen where you want it, push "Print Screen"
Now, open up Windows "Paint" program.
With your blank document, go to> Edit>Paste
It will "print" your screen on that document. Paint isnt the besy picture editor, so save the file and then open your favorite editor and crop your image so its just your "map" and not all the other stuff that was visible on your screen when you hit the print screen button. In the past i have run into areas that Bing couldn't give a Birds Eye view of before, you'll just have to try your area.
Here's a sample of one i did recently for work:

good "birds eye" tip- not much coverage over my way, unfortunately.

Merlin is a md dnr based program that allows you to overlay taxmaps on aerial photos, among other options.  very slow, cranky on some computers, but acccurate (within 20 feet or so, planty to give you a good idea of where to go look for the property markers.).   I find that it only really works on my 10 year old desktop, for some reason.  I'm sure theres a way to print it, but i just use that image to draw lines on a better aerial shot like google.

I never saw property  lines on Google earth- where is that option located?  If its as accurate, would save a lot of time.

I'd check to see if your county has a GIS server available to the public. It may have the photos and data already in it.

Agreed...the majority of my hunting is done in PG County and I use a combination of pgatlas.com and google earth on my droid.

You can also use Maryland Imap.  If you type that into google it will give the homepage.  On the top left side of the page there will be a box that says "Interactive Online maps."  Click this and you will be given several options.  I use the "AGPrint" or "Greenprint" selections...both will give you aerials with parcel lines. Click on either one and again in the top left of the screen select "Interactive Map"  Once it has loaded just zoom into where ever it is that you want, you may even be able to put an address in.  The parcel lines are scale dependant so you will need to zoom in far enough to see them.  To turn the aerial on hold your cursor over the "Earth" that is located on the MD iMap viewer in the upper left corner of the map (this is for the AG Print map).  For the Greenprint map, in the upper right corner of the map is a button that says "satellite"

If anyone decides to use this and has any difficulties just PM me and I will give you my number and I can try to help out.  Enjoy

Wow, that agpring is pretty cool. I am a little pissed though. I told my grandparents for years that the neighbors house they built in the woods is over the property line.

The neighbors house in in parcel 106. Our parcel is 43. Since they built that in 1999 you can not get 150 yards from the house and hunt any of the woods. It exactly 150 yards from all furthest points in the woods except for a tiny spot in the upper right part of the property. It was part of parcel 12 and then they subdivided it.

as my interpretation of the 150 yd rule goes, as long as you have permission of the occupant that is within 150 yds of where you are hunting you can do it.  To be safe, you better get it writing!!!! Without permission, you better stay beyond 150yds.

You haven't been following Leadsled's saga- I think he will get the occupants permission some day, but it will involve a dungeon, sodium pentathol, electricity, and a waterboard.
