Mapping & GIS Blog

We are two mappers who live and work in BC, Canada, and who collectively have been working with maps in some shape or form for over 20 years. We will be using this site to share with you news related to mapping, events that may be of interest to users, and mapping resources such as where to get spatial data, project funding, methods, publications and training. All with a focus on BC and Canada. Thank you for following us and we hope you find this resource useful!

Our many years experience have given us the opportunity to accumulate a collection of resources we believe mappers working in aboriginal communities should be aware and take advantage of. These resources include sources of mapping data, recommended tools, and links to forums, training and conferences. Learn more...
