Chapter 12: The Southern Cities

12.2: Northwest Winkler in 2000

This large-scale colour photo obtained in 2000 allows for identification of changes since 1995 (figure 12.1) and for picking out some details not possible with the smaller scale panchromatic image. Changes that can be detected are:

1)     There is increased residential development in the northwest 1.

2)     Two new baseball diamonds have been added to the recreational complex in the west 2.

3)     A small running track has disappeared from the central area 3.

Items that can be seen more clearly on this image than on figure 12.1 are:

1)     There is a viewing stand west of the running track in the north 4.

2)     A large building southwest of the track has the curved roofing style of an arena 5, and a long narrow building north of it could be a curling rink 6.

3)     An area of mobile homes can be seen in the centre 7.

4)     It is difficult to differentiate between churches and schools on the basis of air photo interpretation alone; buildings that may be schools 8; and those that maybe churches 9.
