Bridging Conservation Science and Practice


Global Forest Watch

Global Forest Watch's overall objective is to infuse transparency and accountability into the decision making processes that determine how forests are managed and for whom. This site has some downloadable Canadian maps as well as interactive maps from around the world. They are currently working to update and add to the data that pertains to Aboriginal peoples.

Canadian Hydrographic Service

From their web site, you will be able to order nautical charts (paper, vector and raster formats), publications (tide tables, etc.), find information on where and how to buy paper charts, and order bathymetric data. This is a good starting point (and maybe your ending point) for ordering on-line digital charts and bathymetric data for coastal areas in BC. Have your credit card ready!

National Topographic Data Base (Geomatics Canada )

The National Topographic Data Base (NTDB) is a digital data base developed by Geomatics Canada.
