Plaques on city map

The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - NEWS -

Owen Sound has a new way for peo­ple to ex­plore the city.

The city’s web­site al­ready in­cludes an in­ter­ac­tive map, which lets users learn about wa­ter­falls in and around the city, the lo­ca­tion and de­scrip­tion of cer­tain com­mu­nity events, and in­for­ma­tion about points of in­ter­est on the city’s Salmon Tour. Now all of the city’s in­ter­pre­tive plaques, scat­tered around the down­town, are shown on a map and can be read on­line by click­ing each plaque shown on the map. For ex­am­ple, the first plaque,

“The Pro­pel­ler Cap­i­tal of Canada” is shown on a satel­lite im­age of the area by the east har­bour wall, de­noted by a red box with a 1 in it, be­hind the Metro gro­cery store. Photos of the plaques, with the his­tory of the topic each plaque rep­re­sents, can be read if clicked on a smart­phone, tablet or com­puter.

The plaques can be viewed www. owen­sound.ca/en/liv­ing/gis-andmap­ping.aspx.
