How to use the Map

To search by place or address, type your location of interest into the search field in the top left of screen. You may also search using GPS coordinates using a latitude, longitude format (for example, -31.976,115.765). Note there is no space after the comma between the coordinates. Users can also grab, drag, zoom and scroll to explore the Map using their mouse.

The aim of the Map is to inform the user whether a property of interest is in, or contains, a designated bush fire prone area. Clicking within the yellow boundaries of a property will bring up a pop-up box informing the user whether the property is considered bush fire prone or not. The border of the property will change to a bright blue colour, so it is easy to identify which property the information relates to.
