Cheap GIS

The no-cost, most immediate solution which I have so far is an ASCII
file on the way from Municipal Affairs. This file provides a county –
municipality match for all of Ontario.

I spoke with Troung about writing a short program to extract and count
the occurrences of municipal names in our programs and mail list data
base then to match then against this file. This process will be an
approximation only because it will not pull out post office locations
which may not be municipalities, e.g. Willowdale.

However, there is some hope that an accurate solution may be found for
the future. Is this a good time to ask the funders for some $ for this?
