The electronic map of Indiana State that is located below is provided by Google Maps. You can "grab" the Indiana State map and move it around to re-centre the map. You can change between standard map view and satellite map view by clicking the small square on the bottom left hand corner of the map. Satellite map view utilizes orbiting satellite or aerial high resolution photography to display images of the map location to street level detail (really quite amazing). Standard map view shows a traditional street map (also known as a road map). You can use the zoom buttons on the bottom right hand side of the map to zoom in or out to street level detail.
