Interactive mapping

On this interactive mapping website you can view maps and overlay the locations of schools, libraries, waste recycling centres, salting routes, safety cameras and many other layers throughout Cornwall. You can find the area that you are interested in by entering a place i.e. towns and villages, street or postcode.


These websites have been designed to show specific information. They are slower than the mapping website above and can take up to a couple of minutes to load on a dial-up connection.

Public Rights of Way and Cycle Routes - this website shows the locations of footpaths, bridleways and byways as well as cycle routes in Cornwall.

Japanese Knotweed - this website shows the locations of areas of Japanese knotweed that have been recorded by Cornwall Council. You can use this website to report new sites where you have seen this invasive plant growing.

Access 2 Monuments – this website is an online guide to accessible monuments in Cornwall compiled by the Historic Environment Service of Cornwall Council. It is aimed at all those with an interest in the countryside who wish to experience for themselves the wealth of Cornwall's remarkable heritage of sites and monuments.

The mapping websites are designed to work with the most common browsers.  All features work in recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome.

We are aware of a problem with Opera.  If you use Opera as your web browser and you have a mouse with a wheel, then clicking the wheel in the map window stops the mapping website from working.  If this happens you will need to refresh the page. 

We are currently testing other browsers.

If you are having problems using a specific browser, please contact the Cornwall Council Geographic Information Services (GIS) team at gis@cornwall.gov.uk.

Please note that the mapping is unavailable every morning between 6:05 and 6:12 while routine maintenance tasks and updates take place.

We are currently unable to support the mapping on mobile devices such as iPhones, Android phones or tablets, but we are investigating the issues and hope to have it working soon.

Cornwall Council strives to meet the needs of computer users with visual impairment or other conditions that limit accessibility. Due to the graphic-intensive nature of these interactive mapping websites, these maps of Cornwall cannot be presented in an accessible format. If you would like assistance with this please contact the Cornwall Council Geographic Information Services (GIS) team at gis@cornwall.gov.uk.

The maps used in these websites are published under our agreement with Ordnance Survey.  Official Ordnance Survey detailed large-scale plans for anywhere in Cornwall and the whole of Great Britain are available to purchase from Bude, Penryn, St Ives and Truro libraries.  Please telephone 0800 0322345 for details of how to make an appointment for this service.

There are many websites on the internet which can help you plan routes and find places of interest:
