Create a searchable Sport Facility Guide for the City of Hamilton that helps us to attract new events in a user-friendly way.
Project Description: When the Sport Tourism Action Plan was launched in 2005, the strategy indicated the need for a sport facility guide in order to have an up to date inventory of venues so that Hamilton can attract new events and attractions. A sport facility guide would describe seating, parking, washroom facilities, change room facilities, media rooms, ice size and other constraints in a user-friendly, web-based database. Project components include both compiling the necessary data as well as designing an interactive tool that could be created for interested clients or associations that would allow them to filter/search for specific facilities and amenities they are interested in.
