Web mapping now available to public

New TNRD service valuable tool for realtors, contractors, developers

Thompson-Nicola Regional District

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) is offering web mapping services to the general public for the first time with its new application, myRegionView, as of April 8.

MyRegionView will provide the general public access, 24 hours a day, to property related information; local services; building permits; land-use information and regulations; and other valuable spatial information, all maintained by the TNRD’s Geographic Information System (GIS) department.

With this new application, users can search for a property and/or map feature in a TNRD rural area or in most member municipalities, 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 now be able to skip the extra step and directly access data that previously had to be requested via TNRD staff,” said Regina Sadilkova, Director of Development Services. “The web application is easy to use and will be most useful for various groups, including realtors, contractors, and developers, as well as the general public.”

The new web mapping application will have 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, which can be downloaded for free.
