New mapping features available from City

Did you know the City has more detailed map data and high resolution photos from Colorado Springs than Google? The City of Colorado Springs has extensive data related to Land Records, Streets, Planning, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Public Safety, and other topics of public interest. The public can access this information through the City?s web mapping service called SpringsView, which has recently been upgraded to offer more features and be more user-friendly.           

Through SpringsView, citizens can search for properties by name, address, or parcel number.  Detailed map data includes information from a variety of City departments, including Land Use, Zoning, Development, Public Safety, Public Works, and Parks and Recreation. Direct links are provided to various related external public websites such as the El Paso County Assessor?s property page and Regional Building Department?s permit pages.  Users can also perform map analysis such as buffering around a property to create a list of mailing labels based on a location.           

The City?s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Division has improved the visual display of the maps to ensure that labeling and other information is clear and readable at all map scales. Users can also access specialized map themes, such as the Parks and Trails view. In the future, as resources permit, this capability and the data sets available to the public will be expanded to include other specialized themes of interest.

To access SpringsView, go to www.SpringsGov.Com/GIS and click on the SpringsView link.
