BC Geographical Names

Integrated Land Management Bureau of the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands presents this on-line forms-based interface to let you query the database of the BC Geographical Names Information System (BCGNIS). Entering a geographical place name in the query box will provide the user with the following information: feature type, NTS mapsheet, and coordinates (latitude and longitude). You can also display the results of your query on a map.
