Following the addition of maps that provide an overview of the city of Liberty and the Fairview/New Hope cemeteries in December 2011, the Geographic Information Services (GIS) division has followed up with two more maps that provide website visitors an interactive way to look at the city and access information at their convenience on their computer.
The Interactive Historical Imagery Map allows users to compare two aerial photography images of Liberty from different years at the same time. Zoom in to a specific area within Liberty or zoom out to see how things have evolved over time. The map offers a help file in the upper right hand corner that describes in detail how the swipe, spotlight and other tools work. Users can compare maps from 1998, 2002, 2008 and 2010. The 2012 imagery will be available later this year.
The Street Overlay Map represents the yearly overlay program for the City of Liberty (from 2004 to the proposed 2012 overlay). Each year’s overlay program is represented by separate layers and show in different colors for each year. Users have the option to turn on and off any of the program years (all are on by default). By clicking on a street within the map users have the ability to obtain more information about the road segment that was overlaid.
To access the new maps, visit www.ci.liberty.mo.us/GIS or look for “Maps” under the City Services tab on the City’s website, www.ci.liberty.mo.us.
