City offering public training to use new interactive maps

November 19, 2014 - 2:10 PM

KAMLOOPS - You’re invited to explore City and Regional District information through interactive maps from CityMap and myRegionView tools.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) and the City of Kamloops have teamed up to offer training sessions to the general public and business community of Kamloops and surrounding areas on using interactive mapping and accessing local government data stored in a geographic information system (GIS).

This session introduces you to GIS - what it is and what you can do with it. The focus of the 1.5 hour training session is on the TNRD and City of Kamloops’ interactive mapping systems. Working with CityMap and myRegionView, you will create maps, explore and analyze the data behind the maps, create a property report, measure, draw, and locate features of interest such as parks, zoning and library locations.

All sessions take place at the Kamloops Library (Downtown) in the Computer Lab.
