Islands Trust mapping tool available

The Islands Trust has recently made available a mapping tool that allows use of their maps and property and ecological information by the public - or at least the public with access to computers and the internet.

It's called MapIT and is located at

There are a number of short videos that introduce the system (but they wouldn't load on my computer Saturday morning).

The two main tools are Properties and Ecosystems. On the Properties application I was able to navigate a map of Lasqueti, and find property information for various parts of the island. I could also switch between map and photographs. There seems to be a good balance between public information and privacy for property owners. Apparently Google Streetview hasn't been to Lasqueti yet. I'm not sure if it's been to the other islands.

I haven't checked out the Ecosystem application yet.
