Planning, Engineering & Permits – Online Mapping


GISWeb Mapping Site

The GIS Division of the Department of Planning, Engineering & Permits is pleased to provide you with a brand new online mapping application. This new site was developed with Geocortex Essentials. We worked with Latitude Geographics to develop an application to provide citizens of the City of Birmingham access to geographic data and mapping capabilities. We will continue to update the site with new functionality, help pages and more.

This new site is HTML5 compliant and no longer use popups. The site will work in Internet Explorer 9 or later, as well as the latest version of Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
GIS Staff are working on creating an online help system. The help system along with new functionality along with new functionality will soon be added to the site. Until the help is ready, there is an overview document to help explain available functionality. Click the link below to view.
