GEOMA has developed NOmap™, creating Northern Ontario’s first and only comprehensive, online, interactive, virtual mapping application showcasing Northern Ontario's tourism values and recreational activities. NOmap covers the area from the French River northwest across the province of Ontario to the Quebec and Manitoba borders, covering an area of 900,000 square kilometres.
NOmap is utilizing GEOMA’s advanced GenTerra web mapping technology and has a comprehensive database of natural features, infrastructure, and tourism data. The enormous task of integrating the Ontario Road Network (ORN) with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) road dataset captures the level of detail in city streets with the location of roads in more remote areas. This elaborate roads dataset for Northern Ontario, currently unavailable from any other source, fully covers both populated and remote areas.
GEOMA has developed search tools that allow users to locate features such as resorts, outfitters, hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, attractions, shopping and recreational trails anywhere in Northern Ontario. Users interested in hunting or fishing will be able to view the boundaries of Wildlife Management Units or view the fish species found in each lake. Businesses can register with NOmap online!! Registered businesses appear as an icon on the map and will have the opportunity to list information, pictures and a link to their website for display.
This unique application highlights the establishments, activities and services available in Northern Ontario and will promote the entire area by making this information easily accessible to the world via the internet.
