Johannesburg Property database online
ALUABLE Johannesburg property and economic information is available online to the public, in two map-based databases. Much of the information is available free of charge; the rest requires a subscription.
The databases were set up by the City of Johannesburg's Economic Development Unit and the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA). The Economic Nodes database deals with business property in 25 business nodes; the Inner City database deals with residential property in the inner city.
THE BUSINESS NODES DATABASE will interest the property sector as it provides an economic evaluation of 25 business nodes to assess their economic potential. It also contains a brief overview of each node, including its history, node description and catchment area.
THE INNER CITY DATABASE provides an estimate of property values across the inner city, from the most expensive skyscrapers to more humble dwellings. The database will be continuously extended to cover more parts of the city as information becomes available.
How to access the two databases
To access the databases, go to http://eservices.joburg.org.za/joburg/eservices, click on 'Online Maps (GIS)', select the 'Free Access' box, then click on the city map.
