Oblique Imagery for the City of Johannesburg
Colour aerial photography captured at a 45-degree angle with the ground is now available for viewing via a user-friendly oblique imagery viewer.
The oblique images allow a user to view any building (or area of interest) within the City of Johannesburg's jurisdiction area (1644km²) from any of the four cardinal directions [North, South, East or West].
The 45-degree angle which is inherent to oblique imagery allow a user to view and measure not only the top of objects but the sides as well.
A snapshot of the City cadastral (property) data has also been integrated with the oblique imagery viewer to allow a user to search for townships, township stands, agricultural holdings or farm portions.
The oblique imagery viewer can be accessed at the following link: https://oblique.joburg.org.za/publication/Oblique%202019
A concise manual is available for download to assist first time users in the basic functionality of the oblique imagery viewer.
The new viewer is hosted on the HTML5 platform, making the website compatible with several browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, and more!
The HTML5 platforms offers increased support for mobile technology, promotes easy accessibility, and improves interaction between the user and the website. The new website is more user-friendly and easier to understand, thereby ensuring that all City employees and residents are able to make use of available spatial data anywhere, without needing expert knowledge.
The new Map Viewer has been designed as part of the CGIS directorate's move toward a smarter city, keeping up with latest technological trends and advancements, as well as meeting the CGIS core values of Innovation and Customer Service.
The Viewer boasts a new and improved look and feel; a more user-friendly, robust, and compatible website, functional on all major browsers; a faster website with improved response time; an integrated and seamless service with the e-Services and Jozinet platforms; and continued efficient internet mapping support.
