Explore by Location
Determine if your area of interest is available for your purpose by researching what is currently happening on the land. You can customize the map view by selecting the appropriate Category of Interest from the dropdown menu in Step 1. If you arrived at this map from an activity page, Step 1 will be pre-selected for you. The information most relevant to your selection will then be displayed on the map. You may further customize the map view by using the Map Layers icon located in the top right corner of the map.
A report based on pre-selected layers can be generated for each of the Categories of Interest however these reports are not customizable – changes made in the map view will not affect the report. A summary report can be generated that will identify overlaps but will not provide details of those overlaps. A detailed report can be generated that will elaborate on the overlaps contained in the summary report.
Follow the steps on the left to begin exploring by location. View the map help page for instructions on how to use the map functions. QUICK TIP: If using the Polygon or Line tool, double-click to complete the shape.
The Government of British Columbia adheres to a policy of integrated resource use, whereby several activities may occur simultaneously on the same land base (ex: a wide range of recreation activities may occur on the same land tenured for forestry activities). The existence of some of interests and values may impact an application; however, many activities may be compatible with existing interests. If you require more information, contact FrontCounter BC.
