City’s Cultural Map to help residents explore Kingston
December 9, 2013 -
The City now has an online, Cultural Map showing the locations of arts, cultural and heritage assets – an interactive inventory of places in and around the city that residents and visitors can use to enrich their experience of Kingston.
"Explorers need maps – and this prototype shows the breadth of cultural assets Kingston has to offer so that people can discover new ways to learn about and interact with the city," says Colin Wiginton, Acting Cultural Director. He notes the creation of the Cultural Map represents a new service area for the City and was a recommendation of the Kingston Culture Plan.
The new Cultural Map at www.CityofKingston.ca/explore, represents a first phase of work and is meant to evolve with time to include more functionality as well as more detailed information.
Right now, the map shows locations and, where available, additional links and information that highlight the following assets:
- Places of Worship
- Public Art
- Heritage Properties, including UNESCO World Heritage sites and areas, National Historic Sites, Heritage Districts and both designated and listed heritage properties
The webpage invites residents to offer feedback to further inform how this new tool will evolve.
