Free topo map web site

I found this really web site for topographical maps of BC. It is all up to date and has fixes from the old 1:50,000 and you can zoom in and see 10m contour intervals!

Just press start and as you zoom in the contour intervals will get smaller.

The BC TRIM data, used on all the BC gov't sites, was produced using aerial photos acquired mostly in the mid 90s. Most of the information is 8-10 years old now, but it's still the most detailed publically availble mapping around. It has nothing to do with, and was not intended to "fix" the older 1:50,000 scale mapping, which was produced from much older aerial photos by the federal gov't. The older stuff is good for 1:50,000 scale use; the newer stuff is good for 1:20,000 scale use.
