  1. Order of Image information

    Can the order of the "image and lidar" grouping be adjusted so the latest imagary is the first in the list, not on the last page.

    • Is dataset downloading working?

      Hello,

      I've been trying to download the "District Planning Zones" dataset, but the "My Activity" progress bar is always stuck at "0% - gathering the data", even if I leave it for hours. Am I doing something wrong, or is something broken?

      Thanks,
      Michael

      • Links are not working on main maps

        Many of the Links/More Info are not working now that the Ecan have updated their website. This needs to be sorted.

        • Groundwater Well ID labels are missing

          When looking at the the groundwater layers, wells, the well identification label no longer shows up on the map, making it impossible to then go and look up the actual well data.

            • Display resource consents

              It would be fabulous if resource consents could be displayed as an area/polygon rather than as a point. It would be so much easier to identify which area the consent covers, and find out whether there is a consent that applies to a particular land-parcel.

                • add the 1850-60s Red & Black original survey maps

                  The original survey maps from the Canterbury Settlement contain a huge amount of information on vegetation, location of water courses etc Effectively they establish a pre-European baseline of the Canterbury Environment
                  Ideally the information on these maps should be digitized so that we can extract the various sets of information I understand Zach Hill as a project underway to capture some of this information

                    • be able to remove white highlight over a parcel

                      Can there please be an option to remove the white semi-transparent highlight over a selected property. It makes it quite difficult to see the satellite image behind and taking a snapshot becomes very tricky.
                      Thanks,
                      Chris

                      • Enable legend/key printing in Standard Viewer

                        Please enable the ability to print a legend in the Standard Viewer, especially for the Selwyn District Planning Maps.
                        Otherwise, make this a layer that is available in the Advanced Viewer, so that a legend can be printed.

                        • Add a link back to the home page from the map viewers

                          Hi Guys, Sometimes I choose a map from the maps and apps page and after I've looked at it I realize it's not the one I was looking for or I want to go back to the website to find something different. A button along the top of the map viewer that links back to the home page or the maps and apps page would be really helpful if that's possible.

                          The little home icon on the top left of the map viewer that opens up a side bar showing contributing councils is a little bit misleading because it doesn't…

                                • Coordinates

                                  Hi Team,

                                  The coordinates function doesn't seem to work. I tried several different browsers on my Windows 7 machine.
                                  Please advise if this is intentional, all other GIS maps allow coordinate to address and vice versa searches.
                                  Kind regards,
                                  Mimi

                                  • Why can I not just find a "one click" way to access the GIS viewer ......

                                    It always seems so hard to access the GIS viewer. Is it the same as the "Canterbury maps" thing, or something different?

                                    I just want a nice BIG BUTTON that takes me straight there straight away!!!!!!

                                    bloody frustrating!

                                    (I have not used the system often, I will use it more, but not if it is so hard to access. Obviously I will probably set up a short cut, but I am wasting time just finding the GIS viewer/system at the moment!

                                      This is a simply fantastic tool, the immense efforts that must have gone into bringing this together are both admirable and well appreciated.

                                      • Bring back the tool that let you export searches to an excel spreadsheet.

                                        This seems to have disappeared in the most recent update. PLEASE bring it back we use it all the time and really need it!

                                        • Make it so yo can extract your own picture from the site like you used to be able to

                                          You used to be able to download the image to a jpg file with a title, border and legend which was really good. I can't seem to do that now???
