The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil res­i­dents can now ac­cess in­ter­ac­tive maps, de­tails about ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties, plan­ning and zon­ing in­for­ma­tion, parcels, un­der­ground as­sets, ae­rial im­agery and topo­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion.

It’s all part of a new pub­lic map­ping sys­tem In­traMaps which has been launched by Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil to al­low coun­cil to pro­vide es­sen­tial in­for­ma­tion and timely up­dates to res­i­dents.

It has been de­scribed as “a big step for­ward in tech­no­log­i­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties for the com­mu­nity” by coun­cil’s di­rec­tor cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity ser­vices Kristy Kay.

“In­traMaps is a user friendly on­line in­for­ma­tion in­ter­ac­tive map­ping, spa­tial and busi­ness data for the gen­eral pub­lic,” she said at coun­cil’s monthly meet­ing on July 17.

“Ceme­ter­ies will be an­other fea­ture avail­able to vir­tu­ally dis­cover and search in the new fu­ture.”

Coun­cil is plan­ning to pro­mote the ben­e­fits of the sys­tem to res­i­dents.

“A quick ref­er­ence guide has also been de­vel­oped to sup­port users and pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on how to use this tool,” Ms Kay said. In­traMaps can be found on Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s web­site https:maps.fed­er­a­tioncoun­ au
