Can all ward boundaries be displayed at the same time?

Postby sasgrw » Tue Jul 17, 2012 6:09 am

I searched the archive and didn't see this question asked.

I can view each ward in our stake and see their boundary, and I can view the stake boundary, but I'd like to see all the wards boundaries at the same time.

As a ward clerk, I can go to CDOL and get a poster size stake map (pdf) showing all the wards but as a 'regular' member, is there a way to do that from maps.lds.org?

Looking at the Maps boundary layer I am getting that only the unit selected will have the boundaries displayed since the options are Selected, Missions, and Areas. "Selected" is the selected unit in the directory column. The "Entire Stake/District Directory" option only displays the stake/district boundary.

Exactly. I'd like a way to display all the ward boundaries at the same time, not just the selected one.

You may want to submit that for consideration for a future release. The best place to do that is the LDS.org "Submit Feedback" link.

If you know someone that has a stake clerk or similar calling, they have access to a web site where you can download kmz files with boundaries of all the wards in the stake that can be viewed in Google Earth. Not sure if that will be useful for what you are doing but it is a handy tool. The stake leadership can even download the kmz files for other stakes too. And they also have pdf files that are printable maps that are nice.

The option for clerks to see such maps on CDOL was acknowledged in the original post. The topic of this thread is what regular members can see in the Maps application.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Sorry I should have read closer. However no mention was made of the kmz files which could be more useful depending on the end purpose. Is there any reason those files could not be given to a member that wanted them? It is just boundary lines.

However I agree having the option on the online maps would be nice too.

Another nice option would be instead of just a simple csv download file of points, have a kml/kmz file download that could also include the boundaries as well as the location points.

I'm working on a web map app to make it easier for the wards to divide wards into sections for emergency communication purposes. It is also handy to help with ward boundary changes. Much easier than having to get all of the geo codes entered in mls.
