The information below is provided by the software vendor and is related to the minimum requirements of the Client PC to use the Mosaic Mapping Services application.

Internet Explorer 8*, Mozilla Firefox
* Mosaic will work with Internet Explorer 6 and 7, but users may encounter issues that can only be fixed by upgrading their browser to Internet Explorer 8 which is recommended by the software vendor
Flash Player 11.2*

Pop-up Blockers affect the functionality of Mosaic
Pop-up blockers stop the communication between the Mosaic database and your PC. Therefore some functionality in Mosaic is limited or blocked entirely and you will experience unexpected behaviour. It is recommended that when using the Mosaic Mapping Services, pop-up blockers are disabled for the length of your session. Pop-up blockers reside in a number of places ranging from in-built Internet Explorer pop-up blockers, through to add-ons such as Google or Yahoo Internet Toolbars. Please consult your IT department for assistance in disabling these systems, or alternatively consult the web for help documents.
Mosaic functionality when using Internet Explorer 7
When using Internet Explorer 7, Mosaic will only work when opened in a single tab. If using multiple tabs you will experience the Internet Exlorer session waiting with a black screen and a time cursor for your mouse pointer. You will also experience this same behaviour if you use the same Mosaic launch link more than once in the same Internet Explorer session. If you experience this sort of behaviour, it is recommended you close all Internet Explorer sessions and reopen. Alternatively, upgrading to Internet Explorer 8 will rectify this behaviour.
How to access aerial photography and contours
Council's latest digital aerial photography and contour information is available through our Mosaic Premium Service. This is a subscription based service where access to planning scheme and geotechnical information is also granted.
