The Town of Whitecourt has launched a new online Geographic Information System (GIS) tool on its website, and council received a presentation on the tool this week.
Using datasets uploaded to the system, the online platform allows residents to view municipal facilities and infrastructure, as well as various types of property information such as addresses, zoning, lot lines, taxes, and assessment. The tool is interactive and allows users to view aerial imagery, measure distances, and create printable maps.
Mayor Maryann Chichak says the tool is very useful in a variety of ways and they are happy to add it to the town’s website.
More data will continue to be added to the site as it becomes available.
