There's new functionality, new mapping resources, and a whole new selection of useful open data available now on the newly redesigned FrontenacMaps.ca.
The site, originally launched in 2010, is the public-facing information portal for the Frontenac County Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Department. GIS offers services including interactive mapping solutions, customized applications, printed cartographic products, and analysis and maintenance of spatial data to clients both in-house and external. It's work that helps people to precisely understand and visualize the geography and geographic boundaries in Frontenac.
As well as a fresh look, the newest iteration of FrontenacMaps.ca adds new applications and links to similar off-site resources.
Also new is an open data portal. For the first time, everyone with an internet connection has serve-yourself access to download spatial datasets on a wide range of subjects including trails, building footprints, zoning, points of interest, and much more.
"We're really happy to offer the new FrontenacMaps.ca to the public," says Frontenac County GIS Manager, Kevin Farrell. "This site allows for a much-improved user experience enabling us to reach and serve more people, more quickly."
The new site went live on November 14, 2022 as Geography Awareness Week kicked off.
