Cant access Maricopa County GIS Map Viewer? Heres why!
As of this writing 4/20/2015 Chrome version 42 no longer supports plugins (including Silverlight) by default. There are a series of steps a user can take to override Chrome’s default settings. In particular the flag for “Enable NPAPI” can be changed to allow access to Silverlight for a few short months. After September 2015, Chrome will stop supporting plugins all together (see steps below).
As of this writing, Firefox version 37 supports Silverlight. This most likely will be discontinued but if/when is not certain, and Internet Explorer 11 does and will continue to support Silverlight. This means only Windows operating systems will have continued access to the Parcel Viewer after September 2015.
The Assessor’s Office Technology Division is currently building a plugin free replacement for the Parcel Viewer. This will enable access from any modern web browser including many of your mobile devices. The new Parcel Viewer will be released Summer 2015.
Below is a temporary fix for Chrome users…
Chrome 42 will prevent Silverlight from running and act as though it has not been installed. To temporarily allow Silverlight to run in Chrome you will need to use a multi-step process to re-enable Silverlight. It is anticipated that Google will not allow this work-around to work beyond September of 2015.
1. Enter chrome://flags/#enable-npapi into your Chrome address bar.
2. Click Enable.
3. Click Relaunch Now to activate the changes.
