The Province of BC has developed a Spatial Data Infrastructure, centred on the BC Geographic Warehouse. This shared data store of geographic data greatly increases the availability and use of the Province’s wealth of geographic data publicly as open data or where restrictions exist, across the enterprise. To support this work, we also provide web services, application frameworks and online applications to discover, view, download and analyze geospatial data.
The Spatial Data Infrastructure encompasses all BC Government sectors, providing hosting, transformation and delivery of data across government and to the public. Used extensively to support government decisions, these systems serve hundreds of thousands of users with 140 legislated and mandated line of business applications such as land tenure, transportation, public safety and emergency response systems.
