SECHELT, BC, CANADA — January 18, 2011 — Sunshine Coast real estate agent Gary Little has today released a major upgrade to his interactive real estate maps of the area. Now — for the first time — lot boundaries are shown for almost all properties included on the maps. All MLS®-listed homes and vacant lots on the Sunshine Coast — an area located in British Columbia 40 minutes by ferry from West Vancouver — are displayed on the maps with rare exceptions.

This compelling new capability is incorporated into the full-featured interactive map designed for personal computers as well as a version of the map designed for smartphones and other small-screen devices. These maps show the locations of hundreds of properties for sale in Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour, and neighbouring areas.

"Being able to see on a map the boundaries of a property for sale is very useful, especially in rural areas where lots are often larger and irregularly shaped," said Gary Little of Royal LePage Sunshine Coast. "And because the property boundary information is now available, I'm also able to position property markers more precisely than was possible before, especially those for vacant lots. This significantly improves the experience of looking for all types of property using my unique maps."

The Sunshine Coast interactive real estate map optimized for smartphones is available at http://imap.GaryLittle.ca/. It can be used with the Apple iPhone, smartphones running the Android operating system or BlackBerry 6 OS, or any small-screen device running a modern browser, such as the Apple iPad. The extended version of the map, designed for use with desktop and laptop computers, is at http://map.GaryLittle.ca/ (showing homes for sale) and http://mapland.GaryLittle.ca/ (showing vacant lots for sale).
