Scottish Assessors Association Portal – Mapping

23rd June 2020

In consultation with Scottish Government and Portal users we are introducing a new Portal Mapping Browser that is linked to our live Valuation Roll Portal database. We have added a map search icon for Rateable Value searches and a map view for valuation roll search results. Portal users will find this on both the home page and advanced search facilities.

Over 90% of all Valuation Roll properties can be shown on a map and we will seek to continuously improve this going forward. We welcome feedback on the map functions and if you have any suggestions for improvement, please send your comments to portalmapfeedback@saa.gov.uk
