Land Owner Name and County are Known

To find the location of someone's land:

1. Click Find Land Ownership.

  • If the browser window is small, expand the window to full screen to view the entire application interface.
  • To center the map in the window, click the Montana Cadastral text (upper left corner).


2. Click Search. The Choose Parcel Search Criteria pane opens.


3. Select the county using the pull down menu.

4. Enter the last name of the land owner and click the Search bar. Owner name links to parcels owned by someone with that last name in the specified county display below the Search bar. With multiple links returned, either explore the parcel information by clicking links and viewing the map or you can mouse over the links to see the land legal description including township, range, and section.

5. Click on the owner name link for the property of interest. A Property Record Card pane displays over a map showing the parcel highlighted in blue.

6. Explore the content of the Property Record Card to learn about the land parcel. You can close and open this pane using the blue arrow tab.


7. In the map that displays, you can also:

  • Explore the parcel in its context:
    • Use zoom tools (the minus and plus signs) to change the map scale. Note: The parcels, the topographic background, and some map data will only display when the map is zoomed in far enough.
    • Click, hold, and drag the map to change the area shown in the window.
    • Show an aerial photo background by clicking the Aerial button.
    • Show a topographic background by clicking the Topo button.

  • Navigate backward or forward to compare different parcels viewed during the same Montana Cadastral map viewing session using the Prev and Next buttons.
  • Print the map using the print icon button.
  • Print the Property Record Card using the Print link.
