District of Saanich GIS (Geographic Information System) map service.
Saanich is excited to bring you a new public GIS map service! We hope you will find it fast, flexible and intuitive. The tools and data you depend on in the current GIS will still be available along with many new capabilities.

Saanich Map Viewer
This interactive GIS viewer is provided to serve the public and enable residents to view, query and create 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.
