1 iMapBC 1 Mapping Exercise

2 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 2 Starting up Web links to iMap: –Maps.bcgov (maps.gov.bc.ca) –Lrdw.ca (lrdw.bcgov) –Nric.ca

3 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 3 Logging in Members of the public have access to iMap – but logging in as a gov’t employee gives you access to more data Logon using your IDIR userid and password (same as your login in the morning)

4 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 4 Getting familiar with the map window Do-It-Yourself Go to: Map Window Toolbar Function Bar Status Bar Information Panel

5 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 5 Going Somewhere? Zoom-in / Zoom-out Zoom to a location tool Advanced Tip: You can also zoom to a particular water license, land tenure, or any value in a selectable layer.

6 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 6 Adding Information (Data) Add Layer Tool Each folder holds a set of layers that you can add to your map Clicking on the pancake stack lets you see ‘composite’ layers

7 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 7 Getting Info about the Data When you need more info on the data layers you can click on the name of it if it’s coloured blue. This will popup a metadata record for it.

8 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 8 Getting Info about the Data the “i” tool To get info on a layer you see on the map: Click on the “i” tool Click on “Layers” (Function Bar) Select the layer you want info on Click on the map on the shape you are interested in results will show up in the Information Panel

9 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 9 Changing Symbols To change a symbol: click on the palette after the layer’s name Information Panel will show this: Select the feature you want changed and the colour you want. 100% transparency makes a polygon “hollow” or “invisible” You have the option of labelling your features by an item in the attribute table

10 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 10 Do-it-Yourself (DIY): starting, zooming, finding, changing start up iMap and log in as a government user find the New West and pan so that you can see Lulu and Annacis Island, zoom into a scale of 1:50,000. add the layer “Environmental Monitoring System” (in the “Wastes” folder) use the “i” tool to find info about the EMS points. Optional: make a report using your Analytical Toolset

11 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 11 Do-it-Yourself (DIY): starting, zooming, finding, changing add the layer “Parks and Protected Areas - BSB” (in the “Administrative Boundaries” folder) Zoom to Layer change the symbol to a light green shade with dark green outline use the “i” tool to find info about the Parks and Protected Areas on your map. locate your favourite park, add layers of interest and make a map!

12 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 12 Making a Map click on the printer symbol Information Panel will show this the result will be a PDF file that you can save, print, or template options include land document template land referral template water license plat

13 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 13 Saving & Sharing your work save session All your changes will be saved and accessible via a URL (web address) You can send the web address to someone else and they’ll be able to see what you’ve done in the exact same location as when you hit “save” Session will be saved for a limited time save and download session All your changes will be saved as a file which you can store anywhere (H: preferred) To reload the session you must start up iMap and use the “Open Session” tool Two options to save your work:

14 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 14 Do-it-Yourself (DIY): map making, session saving select an area to map select your desired template (if any) pick your scale, map title, and any additional info required for your template save it and share it with someone else try saving your session as a file, and send it to someone else to open

15 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 15 Optional: Shapefile Uploading you may receive shapefiles from clients representing their area of interest You can map these in iMap using the upload shapefile tool available under the Analytical Tool Set (Function Bar - Toolsets) select the upload shapefile tool and the Information Panel will ask you for the location of the dbf and shp file. you can also change the title of the layer and it’s symbol colour

16 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 16 Optional: Selection Menu and Filtering Layers when creating land document maps you only want to see your file of interest on the map Click Toolsets on the function bar and choose the Analytical option Click on the “Select” tool as with the i-tool, select the layer of interest with the “select” tool The Analytical Toolset Click on the Select Menu choose the option “Select by Attribute”

17 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 17 Optional: Filtering Layers (cont.) you can select by a number of fields. E.g.: PA_NAME = Cultus Lake Park Fill in your desired query and hit Submit

18 GIS Self-Serve Tools: iMapBC 1 EP and CO Review / Mapping 18 Optional: Filtering Layers (cont.) the Information Panel will tell you how many features were selected and what your options are “Default Report” gives you info about your selection “Extract to Excel” will put that same info onto an Excel spreadsheet “Filter Layer” will remove all other shapes from your layer except for the one you selected. Useful when making land document maps “SOE Report” – creates iMap’s version of a tenure conflict report “Zoom to Extent” – will move the map to where the selected feature is
