GIS Map Service
District of Saanich GIS (Geographic Information System) map service
If you experience errors running the GIS Map Service in Chrome, please use an alternate browser (e.g.: Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) or follow these steps as a work around. Google will be permanently disabling Silverlight plugins in Chrome later this year and this is a temporary work around. A future initiative will migrate Saanich's GIS desktop map service from Silverlight to HTML 5 and remove the need for plugins.
Saanich Map Service
Welcome to your public GIS map service! You can launch the map viewer from your desktop, tablet or mobile device.
Interactive desktop and mobile GIS viewers are provided by Saanich to serve the public and enable residents to view, query, create and share maps with the latest municipal information. The District's map service contains over 80 layers of information of varying themes including terrain, land, transportation, parks, planning, environment, engineering, and emergency services.
GIS can help answer many spatial questions, including:
- finding an address
- learning details about a property (lot size, zoning, assessment, etc.)
- viewing underground infrastructure services (sewer, storm, water)
- learning about Saanich's historical sites, significant trees and trail network
- observing landscape change in a neighbourhood by comparing historical aerial photos dating back to 1997
You may need to install a Silverlight plugin to use the map service. Follow the download instructions or view the the FAQ (PDF 1.3mb) for more details.
