Identify Tool
Click on the Identify Tool on the toolbar and then click on the location on the map where you want to find GIS data. The Identify results appear on the left panel, in the Report window.
In order to identify features on the map the layers need to be turned on. In the example above, I turned on the Tarboro Zoning layer, and then clicked on a parcel and I got the parcel information as well as the zoning information for the parcel.
Google Streeview Tool
Click on the Streetview Tool in the toolbar and then click along a road in the map. A dialog box will show up in the center of the screen with the streetview imagery if there are some available for the location. You can resize the window and drag it anywhere on your desktop. To change the location of the streetview, click on the map again at a new location or navigate using the built in Google Controls. Follow the link for more information on how to use Google Streetview
Note: For most roads in the county Google has created streetview images. However not all roads have been driven. If the dialog window comes up with a blank image then you may have to select a new location.
This tool was developed using Google Streetview API.
