Data BC Portal: iMapBC & Geographic Services
The new Data British Columbia Portal is now open. Here you are going to find an exciting new set of tools and data sources for the geomatics and GIS community in Canada. Within the new Data BC portal under the Geographic Services section you will find the iMapBC tool. That’s where the gold is if you want BC GIS data. But don’t take our word for it let us hear from the horses mouth. This is what they have to say about themselves on the website.
Use this tool to view thousands of map datasets hosted in the BC Geographic Warehouse. You can view the data in an interactive mapping environment: to put together map layers of interest; to upload your own map data; and to produce maps that can be printed or emailed to others.
Although iMapBC can be used as a simple map viewing tool, it can also be used for query and analysis tools (simple GIS functionality).
