VanMap gets an update with Dec 2006 orthos and 07 property values

Looks like the VanMap web service has received a number of recent updates, although the site was already outstanding! According to Jonathan Marek of the city, they have just added an orthophoto layer of Stanley Park based on photographs taken on December 28, 2006 (thats orthos from 3 weeks agao... nice! Sorry but you won't find that on Google Earth ;0). Marek notes that the reason for this update was to help with the damage assessment and re-forestation planning processes - See http://www.city.vancouver.bc.ca/vanmap/o/orthophotos.htm
Also new; the ability to calculate areas of polygons in VanMap and those of you monitoring the soaring property values in Vancouver will appreciate the assessed values for 2007 which are also now available - See http://www.city.vancouver.bc.ca/vanmap/p/propertyInformationRpt.htm
