Using the mapping tool

Step 1. Once in the Mapping System, click on the toolbox icon on the right hand side of the viewer (a spanner and screwdriver).  This opens the toolbox.

Step 2. Click on the Search tab in the toolbox ribbon, these are all the search options for Geocortex. There are 3 difference ways to search for an address:

  • Search by Property Number – Click on the Property Number Search box and enter the City of Coffs Harbour Property Number which can be found on rates and water account information, click the Search button to search. OR
  • Search by Lot and DP – Click on the Search by Lot & DP button. Enter your Lot and DP (and section if applicable) and click OK. OR
  • Search by Address – Click on the Address Search button, as you type the address a filter list of matching address will display. Select the one you are after and hit Search. For this           search to work the address must be recognised and in the City of Coffs Harbour's property system.

Step 3. A successful search will bring up the property on the mapping interface with a pin over the located property. To display the associated property information make sure the Property Information feature is checked on in the layer list then click on the Identify button found in the Home panel of the ribbon and then click on the property to be queried. This will load and display the property information for this and other features. Click the feature heading for more information relating to that layer.
