Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

GIS information on Nelson city properties has been available since 1993. Since then the Nelson City Council has developed a wide variety of information and services, much of which is available online. Care has been taken to ensure that none of the available information breaches the Privacy Act (1993) or the Local Government (Rating) Act (2002).
