Mapplace - Interactive Map of BC General Rating:
  • Cultural and Natural features are both mapped and integrated nicely onto the program with real consideration of the limitations of computer screens.  Themes are really well organized and easy to understand.  Many themes that are uncommon to be plotted on interactive media are also found there.  You can even choose how much details you need on your map for rivers and contour intervals.  Good separation of highly technical themes such as geophysical data into separate maps.  Annotation of features.  This site should be a 6 out of 5 if this rating is allowed.
  • User-friendliness: 4/5
  • Printer-friendliness: 4/5 (Useful copy button for copy and paste)
  • Special Features (Natural): Geological info such as faults, fault types, synclines / anticlines, rock unit contact, earthquakes, volcanoes and mineral occurrences, geographic data such as Digital Elevation Model hillshade, bathymetry, detailed watershed info, detailed river info, contour map, glaciers, landsat photo, and even locations of waterfalls.
  • Special Features (Cultural):  Municipalities, electoral districts, regional districts, first nations reserves and treaties, railways, tree farms, landuse and planning, climate stations and even locations of wells!
