Can You Find Me Now? Santa Barbara Launches Online Maps

Have you ever needed the convenience and precision of a city map displaying parcels, roads and other city-specific parameters? The information is now available online.

The city of Santa Barbara has launched “SB Maps: The City of Santa Barbara Online Map.”

SB Maps provides a Web-based mapping application that delivers custom maps and reports based on data supplied by various city departments.

Previously, the public had to visit the Public Works Department for the information. SB Maps offers public access to browse and view numerous data layers related to the city from the convenience of any Internet connection.

Parcels, assessors parcel numbers, aerial photos (2004, 1999), street segments and many other data layers are available for viewing. With this system, all residents, real estate agents, construction professionals and developers now have immediate access to:

» Retrieve information about a property, including the address and APN.

» Retrieve information about the position and characteristics of a specific location, such as topography, proximity to bikeways, zones and many other elements.

» View and generate reports, either in the application itself or load them into Microsoft Excel for additional functionality.

SB Maps was developed in association with the city of Santa Barbara and Gatekeeper Systems.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
