Mapping and GIS Services

Maps, Apps and Data

Council Spatial Services Unit manages a large number of digital mapping data sets, used to create municipality maps and applications to assist the public in processes such as building or planning applications.

Various maps, including township street directories are available to be viewed online or downloaded from the Map Library.  A specific map request can be made by making a customised Map Application.

Consultants may be able to obtain Council owned data by discussions with the Spatial Services Unit, however a Licence Agreement is required. 

Interactive mapping

Council has developed a web-application that is an interactive online mapping tool. The App capitalises on Council’s existing planning scheme and flood data assets to simply and clearly communicate:

  • the flood hazard categories that apply to the land, based on the overlay mapping
  • for the hazard category, development that Council either encourages, would consider and/or would prefer not to see
  • development requirements, such as maximum filling extents or minimum floor levels for development on the land

The App enables the end user to navigate the Ingham area via viewing it at the local government boundary or zooming in to suburb and street level. Additionally it has the option to view the different layers, which can be switched on as necessary.

Information is generated in response to a specific property address or Lot/Plan query, and is therefore tailored to the user’s request. A planning report is available to save or download. This report should be viewed in conjunction with the Hinchinbrook Shire Council Planning Scheme 2017. 

Please note if you would like to print a map that appears on the screen when using the App you will need to use the Print Screen button option. 

As Council continually expands the collection, they will be added to the map library and app gallery. By using Council's Interactive Mapping App you are choosing to accept the terms and conditions of this tool.

DEVELOPMENT App

For more information regarding how use of the App please see the About tab within the app, for any further enquiries please contact Council's Spatial Services Unit on 4776 4720.
