GeoBC provides geographic information and services in two ways:
- Directly, by involving mapping, analysis and land research specialists
- Indirectly, through the open provision of the authoritative base information
Maps & Spatial Data
Base maps are the information or images that form the background of a geographic map. Base maps may include land features such as elevation, roads, bodies of water or administrative boundaries. A positioning system associates the base map with an actual physical location.
GeoBC provides base mapping data for government, industry, academia and the public.
GeoBC provides professional mapping, analysis, visualization and consultation services to agencies across the Provincial Government and natural resource sector.
With a diverse range of clients, GeoBC recommends and develops custom spatial solutions for unique business challenges. These solutions often contribute to the improvement of existing products.
