Click to go to online map.Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens announces that an online, interactive version of the Official Butler County Transportation Map is now available on the BCEO web site. This web-based version has the same colorful look and feel of the printed map but utilizes interactive navigation and search capability.

Users will find four different zoom levels to help with perspective and provide detail or they can pan in any direction. An alphabetical street index and search feature are also available.

"We've been working to bring our map online for some time," Wilkens said. "As popular as the printed map booklets have been, we sensed there was a growing interest by the public to have the same map available on our web site. We've received numerous comments to that effect."

The BCEO's Chris Petrocy added "Anyone who likes our printed map will be instantly comfortable with this one too. It works similar to MapQuest but we have the all important local advantage. Since it is literally our own map it is much more accurate and contains more local detail. We worked very closely with the cartographers at Engels Guide / Maplocator to produce a map by Butler County people for Butler County people. There will be some further tweaking of the index in coming months and we will constantly be looking for ways to improve on what we believe is an excellent product."
