Topographic mapping is maintained via the City of Toronto’s Enterprise Stereoscopic Model (ESM). The mapping is available in both 2D and 3D. Topographic mapping includes features that are visible on the ground (planimetric), or can be derived from photogrammetric measurements. The mapping contributes towards the Property Data Map series.

The topographic mapping features include but are not limited to curbs, sidewalks, building rooftops, driveways, fences, vegetation, manholes, and catchbasins.
