DISTRICT HALL MAPPING & GIS ONLINE MAPPING & PROPERTY INFORMATION SYSTEM

Welcome to the District of Kent Online Mapping and Property Information System. Here you can view information about individual parcels, zoning information, street addresses, legal plans, engineering, ALR, and much more. Aerial photography and topographic data acquired in 2004 is also available.

Please note the following:

  1. Our system uses an AJAX viewer which does not require you to download any software before you can view our mapping. The system is 100% PC & MAC compatible.
  2. Internet Explorer 5 and above is required together with a high speed Internet connection. Dial-up connection will have a negative impact on the performance of this system and is NOT recommended.
  3. In order to provide the fastest drawing speed when changing locations and scale, most map layers will be loaded when first opening the map. Aerial imagery requires approximately fifteen seconds to load, so be patient.
  4. To print any maps please use the print icon displayed on the toolbar in the Online Mapping and Property Information System not your browser.

Disclaimer:

Maps and documents made available to the public by the District of Kent are not legally recorded maps nor surveys and are not intended to be used as such. The maps and documents are created as part of a Geographic Information System (GIS) that compiles records, information, and data from various data sources which may contain errors. Additionally, maps and documents prepared by the GIS from multiple sources, even if derived from data that is error free, may not be reliable due to differences in the databases or computer programs of the source materials. None of the maps or documents in the Online Mapping and Property Information System should be used for navigational, tracking or any other purpose requiring exacting measurement of distance or direction or precision in the depiction of geographic features.

Assumption of Risk:

User understands and acknowledges that the District of Kent Online Mapping and Property Information System is subject to constant change and accuracy cannot be guaranteed. The District of Kent Online Mapping and Property Information System is NOT TO BE USED FOR LEGAL PURPOSES UNDER ANY CONDITION.

The Online Mapping and Property Information System may have a number of errors which may include but are not limited to the following types of errors:

  • Spatial errors - The areas depicted by these Products are approximate and are not necessarily accurate to surveying or engineering standards. X/Y coordinates may be in error by several meters or more.
  • Attribute errors - Database information may be incorrect.
  • Currency errors - GIS data layers, databases and documents may not be the most current available or may not depict the specified time. All data is subject to constant change. Data input lags real-world changes by varying periods of time.
  • Completeness errors - Data may be missing or data may be included that does not belong.
  • Projection distortion - All map projections introduce distortion by representing the irregular shape of the earth's surface on flat maps. This affects feature shapes, angles, map distances and areas. We choose projections which minimize these distortions when viewing the maps.
  • Calculation errors - Results of calculations may not be exact due to rounding, precision of stored values or algorithm differences.
