Digital maps: free BC topos

British Columbia is now offering free georeferenced topo maps at:

http://geobc.gov.bc.ca/Topographic_Maps_KML_Viewer.html

They can be viewed by any PDF application, but best with something that can handle the associated GPS info, like Avenza's PDF-Maps app. Then you can just move the cursor around and see the GPS coordinates. Note that those metric oriented northerners are using UTM, hence all those funny names for maps. The maps on the site are 1:20k, and look fabulous. The free ones that you download from the Avenza store are only 1:50k.

Digital maps: free BC topos

Sweet. FWIW, I remember when getting BC topos took an act of Parliament.

Beginning our trip south after bettyford's Jackson M&G. When Ron asked who was going north at the Sunday campfire, I realized we weren't, thanks to commitments back home. So, BC is on our radar for 2014. Maybe folks would be interested in a M&G in the Canadian Rockies some place?

Ooh yeah, a meetup in BC or AB would be nice. Lots of interesting spots.
