BCMCA Wrapping Up with Products Remaining Online

from May 28th, 2013

The British Columbia Marine Conservation Analysis (BCMCA) project is wrapping up phase two of our work and coming to a close. Believe it or not, it’s been almost two years since we published the Marine Atlas of Pacific Canada!

We’ve been busy since then… We have published our example Marxan Scenarios for Pacific Canada report. We held a series of presentations and provided many data sets to numerous government agencies, academic projects, and other organizations to assist in marine planning activities. We have also updated some atlas pages, drafted a few new ones, and assisted West Coast Aquatic and the Marine Planning Partnership with Marxan analyses to inform their planning initiatives.

We are working on one more new tool, an interactive atlas that will be hosted on the Community Mapping Network website. We’ll notify you with a posting when this new tool is completed and available for browsing!

The BCMCA is completing its work this spring – as of May 31 2013. However, the BCMCA website will remain active and supported for a minimum of three years. Please continue to find the BCMCA marine atlas and data information and all of our products here at www.bcmca.ca.
