    Regarding using Vanmaps, Can I pick a property address, and see if any and all of City's land use plans or policies that would apply to (cover) that property location?

    Cofa Tsui asked about 1 month ago

    To better understand the policy context around an address, start by searching (or click on) the address in VanMap Property Viewer. From the property report you can see the local area and zoning information. Click on the zone name (hyperlink) which takes you to the zoning and land use library on vancouver.ca. From there you can explore the policies within the library to determine what applies to the address, neighborhood/area and building type/purpose.

    Hello. Will all the layers on legacy VanMap be available on the new apps? Layers such as contours, well locations, streams, etc?

    Xavier Sandoval asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your question! Layers that were frequently accessed in legacy VanMap are being migrated to the new VanMap. Most already have been migrated. Please refer to this list for more details including when the title of the layer has changed and whether you can find the layer in Property Viewer, Infrastructure Viewer or the "Add Data" tool.

    If there's any layers missing that you depend on, please fill out this form to let us know which layers you need.
