What's New with the Data Distribution Service


The Data Distribution Service has undergone a major software upgrade, which consists of back office advancements and application integration with the B.C. Data Catalogue and iMapBC 4 Mobile. The new structure will allow the service to be more scalable and allow the creation of new output data formats.

These changes were made in anticipation of retiring the Distribution Service User Interface in favour of allowing data download from within other applications,  You should notice: better integration, new formats (GeoJSON), and version 10 File GeoDatabase files.  More information can be found on the DataBC blog.

If you experience any issues with the new system, please contact the NRS Service Desk
