Virtually Westbrook

About six months ago, I wrote about the treasure trove that is the City's Geographic Information System (GIS). But today I recommend you check out the Westbrook Maine Assessing information section, which includes more thorough information about your neighbors, including a photo of their (and your) home. So click here to register an account.

The moment we've been waiting for, indeed.

P.S. This new development doesn't make GIS completely obsolete, however. I just learned how to manipulate the map so that I can view the city's vein of railroad tracks. Along with an aerial photo of the city from April 2006 or 2001, deer wintering areas, and on and on.
