    BC government Google Earth land use data file

    I took a stab at making a video tutorial on how to use the B.C. government Google Earth land use data file. This is my first attempt at a video tutorial so sorry for the ummmms and aaaahhhs.

    I tried to get the microphone gain cranked up but it didn't really work. So for now, you're going to have to turn the volume up a little.

    Here's the link to the file you will need. http://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/kml/BCGov_Web_Map_Library.kml




    I've created a new video recently that uses the Front Counter BC data that is now available. Feel free to check this one out too.

    Great tutorial! Only thing that I can think you missed is the option to add leases to the map.

    BC Gov Land Ownership and Status
    ->Crown Leases- Tantalis
    --->Lease Tenures

    You can also look at the lease details by clicking the "Crown Lease Tenure Details". Gives expiry dates, sizes etc.

    It looks like Youtube doesn't like the link to the file so you will have to click on the link that I put in the video description.

    Best post on HBC 2014! Thanks. I've messed around with it before but the last few hours helped pull some things together. Very depressed now looking at all the private land on southern Vancouver Island. LOL Knowing it and seeing it are different!
    If you don't have a seat at the table then you are probably on the menu!

    Cool thanks!
    Unexpected wealth will arrive. Remember he is the richest, who is content with the least, for contentment is the wealth of nature. Although you look for riches, realize that wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. When riches come don't forget that man's true wealth is the good he does in the world. So when opportunity knocks, grab it. It is easy at any moment to resign the possession of great fortune, to acquire it is difficult and arduous.

    As far as I know, the private land is always shown in yellow. I'm not sure where you're looking but it might be that you have another layer turned on. Maybe one of the "Crown" layers???
