As of Feb. 19th, 2015 we now have an OMAFRA Google Mapping of all Provincially Licensed Meat Plants in Ontario.
OMAFRA Database of Provincially Licensed Meat Plants
|OMAFRA's Google Earth mapping of all Provincially|
Licensed Meat Plants (Abattoirs, Slaughter Plants), just
10 months after SFPFC's suggestion.
However, we now have confirmation that OMAFRA's wheels do turn. Miracle of miracles, 10 months later, OMAFRA has left the Stone Age behind, and joined the Internet World with the rest of us, at least in this small area of excellence.
OMAFRA decided to implement their mapping via Google Earth, rather than my suggestion of Google Fusion Tables, likely so that users can more easily sort and filter the data to just the data records desired (eg. chicken processors, not red meat processors, etc.).
Of course, my suggest to OMAFRA may have had no effect on this miraculous occurrence. OMAFRA may have already been working on this project ever since Google Maps was launched in Feb. 2005. If that is true, then OMAFRA took 15 years to implement what I did in 2 hours work. I prefer to give OMAFRA the benefit of the doubt, and say they only took 10 months to implement SFPFC's suggestion made in April 25, 2014.
Thank-you and congratulations to OMAFRA for making this significant improvement.
