Community Infrastructure Mapping System

Under development by the Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics Agency for the past four years, the Community Infrastructure Mapping System (CIMS) delivers a dynamic blend of "Google's mapping library and infrastructure with a comprehensive database of different kinds of community infrastructure." Based on that approach to enabling geospatial data for the general public, CIMS has also been evolving into a base line product for an expanding number of Provincial applications which offer such features as time travel search and topic based search. Links below provide access to the CIMS and web pages with more information about the system:

Comment: CIMS is an exceptional product on many levels: simplicity of interface, extent of data provided, and long term maintainability, to name a few. Particularly noteworthy is the significant availability of location information of value to the Emergency Services Sector. Superb work by the Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics Agency!
