New online mapping system for Waikato residents

Waikato District Council has launched its external map viewer. The new software which went live on Council’s website yesterday, allows customers to view and search for a property, property and road boundaries, property and rating information, District Plan information, utilities information (water, wastewater and stormwater) and aerial photography.
Tony Whittaker, General Manager Strategy and Support, is excited about what the new map viewer offers to customers, “Maps Online gives our customers access to an incredible wealth of information.
Our aim is to have all the information we collect about Waikato district available to our customers through the website.
“Council has been using mapping tools internally to manage assets and deliver services for some time but this is the first time interactive maps are being made available to the public.
“Users can add text and shapes to maps, measure distances and mark areas to say for example, ‘this is where the new shed will be,’” explained Mr Whittaker.
“We’re experiencing high development and growth in certain areas. The information available in Maps Online will be updated regularly to reflect changes in our district.”

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
