Mapping and GIS

 

The mapping and Geographic Information System (GIS) section inputs, processes, maintains, analyzes and outputs digital data in the form of hard copy maps and reports from databases. We use Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS), Computer Assisted Design/Drafting (CAD), and GIS software to maintain the digital data and produce various products. We maintain the GIS database for building numbering in the 911 emergency services provided by the PRRD. We also maintain digital data for other jurisdictions. We are re-sellers of map products as well as special-purpose maps produced in-house.

The Geographic Information System (GIS) is a technological discipline that integrates hardware, software and geographic (spatial) data (such as boundaries, water features, grids, roads, and aerial photos) for capturing, analyzing, displaying, modelling and assessing real-world problems. Multiple layers of geographic data or information can be displayed within a single web application called an “Interactive Web Map”. This information can be retrieved from different data sources (spatial databases/files) sitting on multiple computer servers.

Print Maps

The PRRD does not sell its digital map data at this time. The following printed maps are available from the Dawson Creek and the Fort St. John offices upon request.
