It is important to note that most of the land feature data we use is mapped at a scale of about 1:50,000 and are most useful at scales of 1:25,000 or greater. At finer scales (e.g. 1:10,000) our maps are still useful but only as guidance maps for your property. We only produce land feature maps down to the minimum scale used by the data owner. For more guidance on using our maps and map scale click here.

Use our LAND SEARCH tool to see available land features for your property. 

We recommend ordering a FREE Land Feature Report before you purchase your maps. That way you can see the available land feature information for your property.
