A Technology Leader.
The City of San Carlos has always been an early pioneer and a leader in applying technology and innovation to civic applications. As a case in point, they won an award years ago for having the best website after being one of the first cities on the Peninsula to offer a city-wide site.
They were also one of the first cities to push the City Council agenda and minutes online, so that the public has access to these important files. And let us not forget about San Carlos TV!
The city’s latest technology push has resulted in a nifty little interactive map that you can use to explore and connect with downtown businesses in San Carlos. This includes restaurants, retail stores, and even real estate offices (yes, Dwell Realtors is absolutely in there!)
The map is light and efficient, and allows you to quickly search by category to find exactly which business you are looking for. Once you click on the tab of that particular business, you immediately have a map of their location, as well as their phone number and a single-click to their website.
Here is a screen shot of the desktop version of the business map:
There is also an entirely separate interactive map that’s dedicated to just building and construction material businesses in San Carlos, and that can be accessed by clicking here.
To make these fantastic maps accessible to the mobile public, they are also available in app format for the iPhone (no word yet regarding Android support.) To access these free apps on the iTunes store, click the respective icons below:
Kudos to the City of San Carlos for investing the time, energy, and funds to create such a useful suite of online tools for the residents of San Carlos!
