This site uses pop-ups; and you must enable pop-ups to view Master Title Plats.

BLM uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) on all its secure web servers, rather than the more familiar SSL. (The Arizona MTP/HI webpage is on a secure server). If the Arizona MTP/HI Search page doesn't display at all (in other words it says "The page cannot be displayed"), then your web browser probably needs to be set to enable TLS.

Here are the instructions for setting Internet Explorer to enable TLS:
  • On the Tools menu, click Internet Options
  • On the Advanced tab, under Security (towards the bottom of the list), make sure that "Use TLS 1.0" is checked
  • Click Apply, and then click OK

If you are able to see the Arizona MTP/Hi webpage, but cannot view a map (the Acordex Java Tiff Viewer does not open to display the TIFF images), then most likely Java is not properly enabled on your computer.

Here are instructions for checking that you have Java:

  • Click on "Start"
  • Click on "Control Panel"

If you do not see a Java icon, you may download Java from here and install it.  If you are in a corporate environment and cannot install Java yourself, you will need to call your local Help Desk and request that it be installed.

TLS must also be enabled on Java.

Here are instructions for setting TLS security on Java:
  • Click on "Start"
  • Click on "Control Panel"
  • Click on "Java"
  • Click on "Advanced" tab
  • Scroll down to “Advanced Security Settings"
  • Check "Use TLS 1.0"
  • Click "OK"
Even with the steps above, you may have to set BLM as an “exception” in Java. To do that, follow these instructions:
  • Click on "Start"
  • Click on "Control Panel"
  • Click on "Java"
  • Click on the “Security” tab
  • Click on “Edit Site List”
  • Click “Add” and paste in this address: https://www.blm.gov/az/mtps/
  • Click “OK”
  • Click “OK”

If Java is installed and you can view maps but not print them, most likely you are in a corporate environment and cannot install the files needed to print from this site.  Contact your Help Desk.  Ask them to log in with admin permissions, come to the site, access and print a tiff file.  After that, printing these files will always work from your computer.

If you still cannot print, save the file and print it from your computer instead of the web site.
