Discover Your Community Through Interactive Maps

Kamloops, B.C. –You’re invited to explore City and Regional District information through interactive maps from CityMap and myRegionView tools.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) and the City of Kamloops have teamed up to offer training sessions to the general public and business community of Kamloops and surrounding areas on using interactive mapping and accessing local government data stored in a geographic information system (GIS).

Working with CityMap and myRegionView, you will create maps, explore and analyze the data behind the maps, create a property report, measure, draw, and locate features of interest such as parks, zoning and library locations.
