Welcome to Ipswich Borough Council's GIS WebMap application.
GIS WebMap was created as part of an e-Government project to allow our website visitors to visualise the spatial information that we hold. It has been developed using Geomedia WebMap software.
Before using the system, please check the details on the System requirements page below to make sure that your system has everything you need.
The system works using more than 130 map overlays that are grouped by themes.
To view a specific item using the GIS system use the following step-by-step instructions:
- Select Map Overlay on the left hand side;
- Select the theme that you need (if you're not sure which one, you can 'expand' each theme by clicking on it to view more details);
- Tick the relevant box for the item you wish to be displayed and scroll down to click Update Map;
- The requested information is now shown on the map. In most cases you can see information about an object by scrolling over it with your cursor.
When viewing Planning Applications or Listed Buildings, if you click on the object in question, details can be viewed in a form. When viewing layers from the Adopted Local Plan or the Draft Local Plan, clicking on the object will open a PDF document with the regulations referring to the lines and areas shown on the plan.
A legend showing the displayed layers is included on the right-hand side of the map. To hide the features of a layer uncheck the box of the layer in the legend. You can show it again by re-checking the box.
Searching using an address
You can search for a particular address on the map using the Address Search menu item on the right hand side.
Enter a street name, address or postcode in the search box and choose the required pin in the pop up box to locate a specific address.
This can be used alongside layers, for example to identify which ward an address is in.
