The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) officially launched a new interactive public web map service Thursday.

The media release said this state of the art tool was developed by the RDCK geospatial service and will provide self-serve mapping needs to the public with greater ease. 

“We are excited to launch our new, easy to use web map to the public,” said Sangita Sudan, General Manager of Development Services in the media release.

“There was a lot of effort put into the development of this service by our GIS team at the RDCK and we are eager for the public to get an opportunity to try it out. This is an effective tool which provides zoning details and the location of community amenities, such as fire halls, parks, and community centres.”

The RDCK said the new mapping service provides up-to-date technology trends and advances.

New features include faster draw speed, improved layer styles and labelling, pop-up information boxes, the ability to add your own data tools, options to change your background base map and timely updates of property, zoning and address changes. It will work with web browsers on both a desktop and mobile device.

The RDCK encourages the public use the web map and explore its many new features on their own. RDCK geospatial service staff are available to provide some training and answer questions if needed.

Incorporated in 1965, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is a local government that serves 60,000 residents in 11 electoral areas and nine member municipalities.
