GIS Map Service

District of Saanich GIS (Geographic Information System) map service.

What's New?

Flown in July, 2013 at a 10cm resolution, the latest aerial photo is available as a new layer in the Map Viewer.

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. You can launch the map viewer on your desktop, tablet or mobile device.

Saanich Map Service

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.
