San Diego, CA, December 09, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The City of San Diego has collected and made freely available to the public a wide variety of city and county information, but without the specialized software and training required to view and understand the information, how usable is it? MappingSanDiego.com connects users to this information with a user-friendly Internet mapping website.
Operated by Innovative Mapping Solutions, MappingSanDiego.com provides information in an easily navigated environment, grouping data into categories such as Planning, Environmental, Transportation and Education. Users select the type of information they want to display on the map. For example, a user can view land use, parcels, bus stops, earthquake faults and schools near the location of interest. While viewing a desired neighborhood, the map background is displayed as a street map, aerial image or USGS Topographical map. Users can even view a location with Google Street View to see the surrounding neighborhood.
The diversity and accessibility of the data provided at MappingSanDiego.com is intended to eliminate the hassle and cost currently required to obtain this information from the City or County of San Diego. While the government provides this information at no cost, if it’s not easy to access then average citizens remain unaware about the details of their community.
Innovative Mapping Solutions utilizes the most modern GIS software and website design methodologies. They specialize in building dynamic, easy-to-use web mapping applications. For more information on their products and services, please visit www.InnovativeMapping.com.
