All you need to know about the George Mapping Portal

The George Municipal mapping portal is your gateway to intelligent maps, focused applications and other geoinformation for the City of George. Answering the “where” question for any project, initiative or important decision is now easy for everyone! 

The George Municipal GIS Public viewer contains valuable public information such as Property Information (Registered and Surveyed Properties), Demarcation boundaries (Wards) Integrated Zoning Scheme, Urban Edge, Property Valuation and Elevation (1-meter Contours). This information can be accessed on the Municipal Website by clicking on the mapping icon, alternatively follow this link:

In addition, the Surveyor-General Website and Google maps are available for your convenience. Available applications include George in 3D and ready-to-print maps. The public will also be able to download publicly available data.

Data is updated regularly and ensures the public has access to live, relevant location information to make informed decisions. As location data becomes more important for businesses, residents and ratepayers, George Municipality has seen a marked increase in users recently. Over a period of 24 hours recently, a total of 7500 web requests on the application were measured with 44 000 web requests over a 7-day period. These numbers have increased substantially in 2022 and have highlighted the need for location information.

Due to the increased traffic,  the George Municipality has upgraded the infrastructure to keep up with demand and this has resulted in an increase in average response times from 5 seconds to between 1 to 2 seconds. George Municipality will continue to monitor and improve the location platform to ensure George is becoming a world-class city.
