About Ontario Explorer


Welcome to the inaguration of Ontario Explorer a map-based search engine for the province of Ontario. This page is a generalized version of its "sister-ship" Dive Into the Net which is a scuba diving exploration platform for Ontario.

Our Mission

The main purpose of this search engine is to allow the potential traveller to Ontario to explore the endless tourism possibilities within the province and contact the necessary businesses and support services that they may need. This site is inherently graphical in nature and so your images should be turned on. Your browser should support client side sensitive maps. The site will work best with Netscape 2 or higher. If you are a new visitor to the site, be sure to visit the Introduction menu before you begin your search. It will explain how the site is layed out and show you how to navigate the sites various indexes easily and quickly.

Special Note

In this initial release regions one through four are active. If you click on regions five through twelve or access any Great Lake you will be linked into Dive-Into-The-Net. While this is a platform that caters specifically to the diving community the maps and overview offered are comprehensive enough to allow a general exploration until the remaining sections of Ontario Explorer are issued. The remaining maps will be released in the next few months.
