Eventually, the maps will be placed on the Internet for anyone to view. Someone who needs to check their property lines can do it from home rather than making a trip down to the courthouse.

Ware said a good part of the county has been scanned already, and needed equipment is supposed to be installed by October. He said the system should be completed by next year.
