Integrated Cadastral Fabric
The ICF is a seamless spatial dataset of land parcels covering the entire province. It is a composite product built from spatial and attribute data obtained from Local Governments, the Land Title and Survey Authority (LTSA), BC Assessment (BCA) and the Crown Land Registry (Tantalis).
Since 2001, GeoBC has maintained much of the ICF on behalf of the Integrated Cadastral Information (ICI) Society. The ICF was developed to support the business needs of the ICI Society partners who have a common interest in the management and distribution of current parcel and land ownership information.
Since 2016 the ParcelMap BC Parcel Fabric, compiled by the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA), has been published in the B.C. Data Catalogue. ParcelMap BC is an electronic dataset of all active titled parcels and surveyed provincial Crown land parcels in the province.
Currently, GeoBC is replacing much of the ICF spatial data with ParcelMap BC spatial data and combining this with ICF attributes on the parcels. Select the link to see a current status map of this transition.
GeoBC is planning to retire the ICF and adopt PMBC at some point in the future. However, GeoBC will be meeting with Provincial Government clients of the ICF to discuss their needs in late 2019/early 2020. This engagement is intended to raise awareness of this transition and to gather input from ICF users on the type of information they require.
