1 BCGS Ministry of Energy and Mines B RITISH C OLUMBIA The MapPlace - An Internet-based Mineral Exploration Tool

2 BCGS Larry Jones Don MacIntyre Pat Desjardins Ward Kilby acknowledged as early developer of MapPlace The MapPlace Web Site Features & Design Available Data & Maps Examples


4 An Internet-based system providing access to vast amounts of geospatial data Users can interactively view, search and download datasets Create, copy and print maps and reports What is The MapPlace ?

11 BCGS Geology with 1:250,000 Contour Lines

12 BCGS Point Databases MINFILE - mineral occurrence locations linked to reports, downloads & MINFILE\www searches ARIS - exploration assessment report index linked to reports, downloads, ARIS searches & PDF reports COALFILE - reports, boreholes, trenches, bulk samples linked to reports, downloads & PDF reports RGS - regional geochemistry surveys linked to spreadsheet downloads Others – PNG wells, claim posts, aggregate pits, gazetteer, mining & smelting operations

13 BCGS MINFILE with LandSat & Report Link

14 BCGS ARIS with Ortho- photo & Link to PDF Report

15 BCGS Map report of COALFILE data on DEM

16 BCGS Regional Geochemisty Surveys (RGS) on DEM

17 BCGS Mineral Tenure with Aeromag & Link to Report

18 BCGS MapPlace Tools & Menu Vector, Raster, Point display URL & database linkages from map objects Hardcopy and digital output Zoom, copy, bookmarks, view reports Buffer generation, multiple projections, distances Object selection by buffer, polygon, radius Client input capabilities Extensive help & tutorials

19 BCGS 21 Theme Maps Available BCGS Geology Map Exploration Assistant Mineral Titles Map World Map Canada Map USA Map Jennings River Geology Barkerville Geology Lillooet LRMP Map Guichon Batholith Vernon Geology Map Aggregate Potential Map Terrain Map Index Regional Geophysics Map Relief and Radar Map Southeast BC Geophysics Petroleum Titles and Wells Coal Map BC Geology Map Index GSC & GSB Geology Indexes Mineral Activity Maps

20 BCGS Available Maps The BCGS Geology Map has access to most of the available geospatial datasets. The Exploration Assistant allows you to actively search and display elements of 4 main databases. The Mineral Titles Map displays mineral, placer and Coal tenures, with a lower window linked to Titles database. Crown Grant rasters are downloadable on this map.

21 BCGS Investigate The MapPlace

22 BCGS Exploration Assistant query tools (JavaScript, ColdFusion) Gazetteer to find location Discovery Potential: where Mineral Resource Assessment program predicted new deposits MINFILE by commodity or deposit type or name Regional Geochemistry by provincial or map sheet statistical threshold Geology by age, lithology and terrane Mineral Titles by claim name and anniversary date
