  • Maps

    We’ve assembled a collection of forest-relevant interactive maps. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the mapfinder below. Click on a slide to see the interactive version of that map. Once you’ve chosen a map, you can drag the map to any area of the province, zoom in and click on polygons for specific information.

    Please note that these maps do not load into your browser immediately. Each contains a lot of data and may take 15-20 seconds to load. If all you can see is a satellite image, zoom into the map a step or two.

    Below the mapfinder, there’s a list of other maps that you may find useful for understanding forest-related issues on the Discovery Islands.
