SIMON - Sefton Interactive Maps Online, is our new web-based mapping interface that replaces Sefton Maps.
SIMON is simple to use and presents a Google Maps style interface that users can navigate with mouse controls or through a comprehensive address gazetteer. A wide range of local data and information is available for viewing and querying. It is proposed to add to this data on a regular basis as more information is provided in a map-based format.
A “Local Knowledge” option will allows users to discover information, facilities and services about their own property and surrounding area. For example:
- Who are my local councillors?
- Where are the nearest schools, leisure centres, libraries, recycling centres?
- Are there any constraints to planning in the area?
- And a wide range of other information.
Using SIMON on a desktop computer allows users to save and share their own locational bookmarks. On mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, SIMON offers a simplified view centred on the users current location.
When using the address search facility in SIMON, if you are unable to find an address, please report this at https://forms.sefton.gov.uk/contactform/ Select Missing Address from Website in the "enquiry relates to" box.
