The Virginia Beach Department of Communications and Information Technology (ComIT) has launched a new and improved map application on VBgov.com, the city’s official government website. Developed in-house by ComIT, the new map application has many improvements that enable the public to locate city services.
Starting with a base map of Virginia Beach, users can choose from among several map layers to turn on or off, such as trash and recycling collection days, flood zones, voting districts and more. Users have the option to get directions and select a satellite, street or map view. The new map center is more responsive with faster load times and the ability to view maps on different types of devices. Searches return more complete results, which are highlighted to make finding information easier. In addition to property address and Geographic Parcel Identification Number (GPIN), the map center includes new searches for schools, neighborhoods, intersections, parks, libraries, museums and historic sites, and much more. User-created maps can be easily saved, printed and shared.
Finding city services and facilities and creating customized city maps to meet specific needs has never been faster or easier. The new VBgov Map can be accessed by going to www.vbgov.com/maps.
