Notice: This online mapping application is a convenient way to see Assessor's parcels and other maps overlaid on an aerial photo of Thousand Oaks. It is not, however, an official source of mapping information, and is provided only as a convenience to users of the City website. For accurate, current information, please contact the appropriate City or County department.
Also, you'll notice that some layers appear to be misaligned relative to others. That's because these different layers have been developed independently for different purposes, at different times, often with very different technical procedures by different agencies. In particular, these maps are not intended to be used in place of surveyed boundaries. Therefore, please don't rely on these maps to define the location of Assessor's parcels or other features.
Tips on how to use this application
- Try the Search for Parcel link. You can search by address or Assessor's Parcel Number (APN). Partial entries will return multiple matching results.
- Layers and groups of layers can be turned on and off with the checkboxes in the left-hand table of contents.
- Use the zoom and pan tools to move around on the map
- Be patient! On dialup connections, the map may be slow to draw, especially when the aerial photo is selected.
- To find a layer on the layer list enter the first letter of the name of the layer. For example, if you're looking for a layer name "Park" type the letter "P".
