City of Ithaca Introduces Public Interactive Maps

(WBNG Binghamton) The City of Ithaca GIS Program is pleased to announce the release of the City of Ithaca Public Interactive Web Map. 

According to a news release:

This public service is made possible by the Tompkins County-City of Ithaca Initiative, a 12-year inter-governmental collaboration.  This partnership has allowed both governments to serve staff and the public with the latest, most powerful online mapping technologies, while limiting costs and eliminating redundancy.
 
The release of the public map completes our migration to a new enhanced method of making data accessible to citizens, visitors and the business community.  Via this citizen access tool, constituents can find detailed information about any property, zone, historic district, ward, City managed tree, park, road configuration, and can overlay any of these pieces of information with the color aerial photography for a complete picture. 

The new viewer has over 50 tools to help individuals access publicly available information, extract or annotate measurements and coordinates, and see alternate views of any City location through Bing Maps or Google Streetview.  Properties can be searched by address or parcel number, digitally annotated and emailed or printed to share ideas with City Officials.
