2 Weather by The Weather Network

The Weather Network visualization is relatively simple but is tied directly into Environment Canada for all weather warnings!
For the most official weather we prefer to link to the Government of Canada Source, but this often is only for major centres.

3 Weather by Forecast.io

Would you like to see this as a graphical illustration of your local weather?

5 Photo Posterboard

Using a similar output as the Photo Collage, the posterboard ZOOMS the images when clicked to allow easier reading of local posters. Management is as easy as adding/remove photos from a specific photo album in TownLife.

15 TimeLine Widget

Build visually rich, interactive timelines.
Can be used for local lore, municipal history or an interesting tale.

CLICK the arrows or a timeline element to preview.

  • Keep it short. We recommend not having more than 20 slides for a reader to click through.
  • Pick stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.
  • Write each event as a part of a larger narrative.
  • Include events that build up to major occurrences — not just the major events.

16 StoryMap Widget

Create stories on the web that highlight the locations of a series of events.
Can be used for local scavenger hunt, park tour or an walking tour of your community.

CLICK the arrows to follow the path.

22 Open Data Initiatives

TownLife has been working on prototypes for better transparency and open government initiatives,
basically easier ways to publish information to your ratepayers. This isn't additional work, since municipalities need to regularly submit their records to the province, are you interested in improved visualizations of your data? or comparing vs other municipalities?

Using Google Public Data Explorer and Prepared by TownLife, these Annual Municipal Financials are based on data from the Government of Alberta. The 'Municipal Financial Information Return (FIR)' requires a breakdown by function of revenues and expenses. When deciding where to classify a particular revenue or expense, the primary criteria is the purpose or objective of the activity to which it is related. The categories of this information are defined by the Financial Reporting and Assurance Standards of Canada.

23 PDF Searchability with Signatures

Are you interested in uploading Council Minutes with signatures but still keep them searchable?
While it is still best to convert from Word directly to PDF (and free)
sometimes our documents have signatures which usually makes them unsearchable,
a solution now exists that TownLife can help you implement!

Using Adobe DC
