There is a new tool on the LA County GIS Viewer that allows you to input a buffer distance and select one parcel, and the GIS Viewer will create a buffer polygon. You may then click on the ID in the results window and the parcel attributes will pop up. It’s a simple but helpful tool for users of the GIS Viewer.
The tool is called “Select and Buffer a Parcel” and is located under the “I want to” menu.

The LA County GIS Viewer is fully running. The objective of the GIS Viewer is to publicize the County’s GIS authoritative data holdings and enable wide access to them through a powerful set of web-based GIS tools. Click on the image below to launch the viewer or go to http://gis.lacounty.gov/gisviewer. You will need to install Microsoft’s Silverlight tool in order to utilize the viewer.
For further information or to download the training manual and see training videos, go to the “GIS Applications” menu and then click on “LA County GIS Viewer”.
I have completed working with Pictometry to make an important change to the parcels shown Pictometry Online. There is a new layer called Parcels (Streamed) which is coming directly from the County’s servers, and is updated weekly.
In the past, parcel data was uploaded to Pictometry and pre-rendered in a Web Mapping Service (WMS) – cached for speed.
The new parcel data is streamed from the County’s servers to POL through a Web Feature Service (WFS), and rendered locally.
You will most likely notice that the streamed layer is slower than the cached layer (especially upon initial load). For now I will maintain both layers, but the cached layer hasn’t been updated in about 6 months, so I believe that currency is more important that speed at this point.
There are two parcel layers at this time – try each one and determine which one you think works better for you.
The Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning announces that GIS-NET3 Public GIS web mapping application is being released today. This is the replacement for GIS-NET Public, which was originally turned on May 2006, revised in late-2008 and eventually disconnected in Nov 2012.
Here is the direct link: http://planning.lacounty.gov/gisnet3
Today it was made available from the Interactive GIS Web Mapping Apps page on the Department’s website – click here.
Some known issues:
Please send questions about the application directly to us; send email.
Any feedback you provide will be welcomed.
Z-NET Public (http://planning.lacounty.gov/znet) has just been upgraded to give the public more parcel information. Now, instead of going directly to the Assessor’s Map Book Page (AMBP) when the APN link is clicked, the link now opens the Assessor’s Detailed Property Information Sheet for the selected parcel. Not only does this page display a selection of parcel data but it contains links to other pages, including the AMBP and Parcel Change Activity, as well.
Please click on the image below to see the new APN pop-up.
Z-NET Public is a GIS web mapping application developed by the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning’s GIS Section. If you are looking for other GIS web mapping applications for Los Angeles County, please click here.
