Online Mapping

image depicting Online Mapping

LocalView is an online map based system designed to enable you to search for and locate properties in the City and County of Swansea.

LocalView also allows you to view the location of Council services (including a 'find your nearest' option), and access up-to-date information about local services such as schools, civic amenity sites, post offices and GP Surgeries.  It also gives you access to aerial photography for the City and County of Swansea.

LocalView lets you:

Address Search

    * This facility allows users to search for an address or postcode using the Council's Land and Property Gazetteer, and display the property's location on a map.

On the Map

    * The user can point and click on a map to indicate the location in which they are interested.  Having selected a location LocalView can then be used to extract information in two ways :

Find the nearest

    * To list by distance all the nearest facilities (for example, schools, GP surgeries, Recycling sites) to the location specified, and click on those facilities to extract further information.

In the area

    * To list all the facilities that fall within a specified distance of the location, for example, to show all the Schools within 5 miles.
