Well, what if you want to see all of the current county lines in Google Maps?

You can now, by using this free web page that I created: County Lines on Google Maps

UPDATE: In addition to the US, you can now also view county lines in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Switzerland.

You'll see all the county borders for the state you're looking at, drawn on top of a fully functional Google Map! Feel free to share if you find it useful!
TIP: Enlarge the map to full screen by clicking that button in the upper right corner of the map!

Note: US coverage includes all 50 states plus Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa.
