WHIP! is a piece of software that displays drawings inside a Web browser. WHIP! uses the Drawing Web Format (DWF), a lightweight vector file format that preserves the security and precision of original DWG files. This format reduces the size of the original DWG file which increases the speed at which they can be accessed. In order to view the maps that are found on this site you will need to download a copy of WHIP! and install it on your computer. Once WHIP! has been installed, clicking on a DWF link in your browser will trigger the plugin and the file will open inside the browser window automatically. For more information, please refer to the documentation provided on WHIP!'s website:
