  2. Select the layers you wish to view
  3. Properties that match the criteria will load, with the colour key at the top of the map


Property Labels

Property Labels allow you to see information about either the current or all properties on your map such as the address, attributes, ownership, last sale or area.

An easement is a section of land registered on a property title and provides 'the right to enter or use a section of land for a particular purpose by someone who is not the land owner'. An example is a shared driveway.

You can view Property Easements on the Interactive Map by selecting Property Easement under Map Layers. Property Easement's Appear on the Interactive Map as pink:

Contour lines join point of equal elevation above a given level (such as mean sea level) and show valleys and hills, and the steepness or gentleness of slopes on a map.

Pricefinder displays contours in red, and are labelled for every 25m of elevation. To enable contours select Contours under Map Layers.
