The City has released a web-based, interactive GIS mapping application that they say offers a wealth of geographic-based information about the community. They say Stratford’s public GIS system tool allows users to search a city map and pinpoint things like property addresses, churches, schools, sports facilities and other community destinations. According to a release, mapping layers can be easily activated to display everything from bike lanes to bed and breakfasts, railway lines and recycling zones, heritage properties, parks and parking lots.
