  • ZIMAS does not includes information from SurveyLA
  • SurveyLA information is available at HistoricPlacesLA
  • ZIMAS provides a link to HistoricPlacesLA when searching by address
  • Until all historic resources data are in HistoricPlacesLA.org, ZIMAS is the most up-to-date source of information on designated resources."
