At the Fraser Valley Regional District, mapping is synonymous with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). GIS is used to question, understand, and view what
features are in relation to where
they are. GIS plays an important role at the Regional District; it is utilized by all Regional District departments as well as by a variety of local and provincial government agencies, private sector groups, and members of the public.
Currently, the GIS Group provides two online services for public use. These services include an interactive web map as well as a series of indexed road maps. To experience the Regional Information Map, please click here
