Web GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Terms of Use


By entering this site, you are agreeing to the following terms of use:

The web mapping applications (accessible upon agreeing to this disclaimer) are provided as a public service by the City of Ventura, GIS (Geographic Information System) Division of Information Technology.

The City of Ventura provides this information with the understanding that it is not guaranteed to be accurate, correct or complete and that any conclusions drawn from such information are the sole responsibility of the user and made at their own risk. The City of Ventura shall assume no liability for: 1. Any errors, omission, or inaccuracies in the information provided regardless of how caused; or 2. Any decision made or action taken or not taken by the user in reliance upon any information or data furnished hereunder.

Availability of the City of Ventura Map Server is not guaranteed. Applications, servers, and network connections may be unavailable at any time for maintenance or unscheduled outages. Users are cautioned against creating dependencies on these services for critical needs.

Regarding parcel ownership: California Government Code 6254.21 states that "No state or local agency shall post the home address or telephone number of any elected or appointed official on the Internet without first obtaining the written permission of that individual." As the cost to collect and continuously update this information is prohibitive, the Ventura mapping application web site does not display the Assessee name information.

Regarding Police Calls for Service: Calls for Service are not Crimes. They generally regard concerns for public safety and are typically initiated by the public through the 911 system. Public Safety Dispatchers receive the calls and assign the appropriate response, be it medical, fire, or police.
