Why is the map responding slowly?

We are always monitoring for performance as more and more users discover the Watershed Viewer.  The app may occasionally experience slowness for a variety of reasons.  Here are a few:

  • You are zoomed out in an area where there is a lot of map features (i.e. parcels) and you use the pan tool to pan to a new area.
  • You are zoomed out when using the popup tool, which is delayed by having to draw the map features first. 

To improve performance, you can: 

  • Reduce the number of layers turned on.
  • Use search by address to get to your desired location.
  • Confirm that you do not have more than one application session open at a time.
  • Refresh the browser page if you encounter consistent slowness.
