Map Instructions

This map is equipped with various tools to make viewing and navigation as easy as possible. These can all be accessed in the title bar in the following order:

1. The information icon next to the logo will close and open this sidebar.

2. The Basemap dropdown will let you choose between four basemaps: Basic, satellite imagery (Google), Google Streets, and USGS Topographic.

3. The Navigation dropdown will let you quickly hop to a different city.

4. The first of the four icons (to the right of the Navigation dropdown) toggles the Address Locator window. Enter an address for quick navigation. Be sure to include St, Ave, etc. in the address.

5. The second icon (which looks like a stack of papers) toggles the Project Alternatives window. Here you can toggle between preliminary design footprints 1-4, and turn on property parcels within two miles of the alternatives. Clicking on a footprint feature will tell the component name and clicking on a parcel will tell you the Assesor's Parcel Number (APN).

6. The third icon (which looks like a bullet list) toggles the legend window.

7. The fourth icon (which looks like a camera) will let you capture a formatted screenshot of the map. Be sure to set the intended zoom and legend placement prior to clicking this button. A file called “screenshot.png” will download and show up in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that file and then you can save that image.


This webmap enables members of the public, property owners, agencies, and interested parties to review preliminary footprints for the four different build alternatives described in the San Jose to Merced Project Section Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) released by the California High Speed Rail Authority (Authority) on April 24, 2020. This webmap presents the temporary or permanent footprints for each of the different proposed build alternatives, and about which the Draft EIR/EIS describes potential community or environmental impacts. These draft footprints are based on preliminary engineering and subject to change during subsequent stages of project design. The draft footprints do not represent any commitment by the Authority to disturb or acquire any property contained within the areas, because the project design and associated land use areas are preliminary, the project is not yet formally approved, and final design has yet to be completed. Users of this website are directed to the project website for the EIR/EIS that contains more information on the proposed project, including the preliminary engineering design plans.
