Local environmental non-profit Project Watershed, in association with other local groups and local governments, has created an online directory of maps for the Comox Valley (CV Map Directory). This directory encompasses a wide array of digitally available maps that pertain to the Comox Valley including but not limited to historic walking tours, sensitive habitats, nature viewing locations and property parcel information.
This initiative came out of an inter-agency meeting organized by the Comox Valley Land Trust. The aim of the meeting was for local groups and local governments to share what they are doing in terms of online mapping and it soon became apparent that an online directory would be useful. With input from the other agencies Project Watershed took the lead in developing the directory which now can be found online at cvmaps.ca and on the Project Watershed website projectwatershed.ca/mapping-and-information/cv-map-directory/.
The intention of this directory is to be a complete listing of all the digitally available maps for the Comox Valley. Project Watershed invites you to utilize this new tool and to notify them (with the URL) if you know of a digitally available map that does not appear on the list (email – firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Comox Valley Map Directory will be featured at Project Watershed’s upcoming map launch Mapapolooza along with a preview of the much anticipated K’omoks Estuary Interactive Map, the newly created Walking the Watershed Map Booklets and the Comox Valley Cycling Map on Saturday April 25th, the weekend after Earth Day. More information on this event will be available on the Project Watershed website as the month progresses.
