Click on the BCGS map and zoom into where you want to go.
Make your selections on the left list, more appear as you zoom in.
Select rivers, lakes, roads, contours, ect.
Select BC Administrative Area Layers.
Pick BC Localities [<500K] to find places. As you zoom in you will see it under BC Administrative Area Layers. They are not perfectly accurate but give a good idea whats there.
Right click on the map for other options.
Click on View and select View Distance. Then click on the map from the start of your distination, click on the route you are going to the end to see the total distance.
Has many other features also.

I sure hope that this site hasn't already been posted.
At least I couldn't find it on any of the pages of this Tread.

http://maps.gov.bc.ca/
Click on Provincial Basemap and perform the same functions as with BCGS.

http://trail.brijn.nu/showmap.php
Click anywhere on the map to re-center. Adjust the resolution or "side of map" to different values in order to zoom in.
Bas has also enabled a feature to PRINT the map of your choice, with UTM grid overlayed - handy little feature!

The MEGA-maps page is awesome too, but a bit tough to get the hang of!

Keep posting any map-related sites Wildman, I'm always on the lookout for good ones.
GoogleMap is pretty good too, but there are a LOT of areas that don't show up in the satellite shots.

Hi Wildman, that is a definately a cool site! It has been mentioned in the past in this thread:
https://www.clubtread.com/sforum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1673

I'm still holding out for the BC Basemap on a DVD-Rom so I don't need an internet connection!

LOL! My gosh. I didn't think to try a search for it. I tediously went through all the Treads I thought it might be in. Ha! Ha!
It wasn't in "SUBMIT A SITE", "TECHNIQUE", "TRAIL TALK". I mentioned it previously in TR's. Who would have thought it would have been posted in "HIKING BC" and posted under it's proper name so it could be easily searched for. Boy' O 'Boy. Oh well at least it's where it should be now. LOL.
