TNRD Web Mapping
The Village of Ashcroft and the Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD) are now offering web mapping services to the general public with the new application MyRegionView.
MyRegionView provides the general public access 24 hours a day to property related information such as Building Permits, water features and other valuable special information, all maintained by the TNRD's Geographical Information System (GIS) department. Some of the details available for Ashcroft properties include BC Assessment information, building permit information, first nation reserves, lot lines and lot sizes.
With this new application, users can search for a property and/or map feature, generate a property information report, create a printable map, or find services offered by the Regional District such as libraries, water systems and transfer stations. It is integrated with Bing and Google Maps, both aerial image and map based.
MyRegionView is a valuable tool for users who will not be able to directly access data that previously had to be requested from staff or found via more complex research. The web application is easy to navigate and will be useful for the general public but especially for realtors, contractors, appraisers and developers.
The new web mapping application has a simple interface with intuitive and powerful tools to search and display layers of information, measure distances and areas, as well as print maps in a variety of different formats. MyRegionView is compatible with all major browsers and requires Microsoft Silverlight Plug-In and Adobe Reader, both of which can be downloaded for free.
