The Council’s Chief Information Officer Eion Hall detailed the site’s quick and easy access to the rating and property value information for any property in the city.
“This is one of the most user-friendly additions to our website. You can search for any address in the city, and our GIS map tool will zoom right in on it,” said Hall. “From there, it’s a ‘click-through’ link to the online property file, with information about rates, land and capital value, as well as legal descriptions and property sizes.”
The easy access property details provides a benefit to those employed in the real estate sector, as well as home owners, prospective buyers and property developers. By easing the access, the site improves the efficiency of the process, and aids in economic development for the city.
GIS property mapping is available under the “Our Services” tab on the www.hamilton.co.nz
homepage. The GIS Mapping Viewer is compatible with all common computer and smartphone devices, including iPads, iPhones and other mobile digital technology.
A similar searchable database and GIS Mapping Viewer of cemetery sites allows visitors to the Council’s website to search for the area of Hamilton Park Cemetery where loved ones have been laid to rest.
