Hi,

Shameless plug for my own site : http://trail.brijn.nu

It allows you to create maps with the size and scale you want using the publicly available data.

See the main page for an example of a map generated. If you create and account you can create very large (high res) maps

For iMapBC, if you add layers, add 'Base Map auto scale' and contours, then turn off the colour image overlay and the contour labels, you get the same functionality as the old BC Basemap.
Thanks for that advice. I haven't been able to find how to turn off the colour image overlay. I'm probably missing something obvious, but if you could detail it for me anyway, that would be great.

It would be great if we could save these settings in preferences so that we didn't have to go through all this setup every time we want to use the application. Even then, iMapBC is far more sluggish than the old basemap viewer.

When you launch iMapBC, one of the icons at top left, to the right of the zoom in and zoom out and scroll-hand icons, is a green square subdivided into nine smaller squares in a 3x3 grid, like a sudoku square or a tic-tac-toe board or whatever. hover over that and it says "turn base map on/off". that's the one you want to turn off.

Thanks.
I tried that, but got a blank screen. I probably was too impatient.

Okay, I got it now. And it is more responsive like this. Nice to know.

Ahhh thanks Dru! I'd been tryingn to figure out how to change the colour of the peak labels to better contrast against the brown background, but this is much nicer.

This site is primarily intended to show property lines. By checking the layers you want, you can see the trim maps as they used to look around 2005.
