Looking for data

Hello,

I'm searching for a geo spatial file as depicted on the map

FIRST NATIONS PEOPLES OF BRITISH COLUMBIA

http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/abed/map.htm

Has anyone out there obtained this information?

FN Map

Hello KMac,

I have not come accross such geospatial data and I think it may be difficult to obtain, given that the boundaries are deliberately blended - such data does not lend well to GIS. 

However, in the first paragraph, they mention using the SOI boundaries and this Sovereign Indigenous Nations Territorial Boundaries map, which I had not seen before:
https://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/abed/images/map2.jpg

It would be fairly easy to georeference the map and digitize those boundaries.

This page will direct you to where you can find the SOI boundaries: http://www.nativemaps.org/?q=node/1351

Please share your discoveries and maps with us, it would be great to see what you do!

Best, Eliana.

 


Another place to check...

The Land Belongs to US until we give it up.....

The BC Ministry of Forests has First Nation boundaries on their FTP site... you probably have to go district by district, but it's there. Sorry I don't know the URL off hand...

That's really interesting Fireweed. How do they delineate the FN boundaries? Is it Statement of Intent?
