About the Project 

The Georgia Strait Communities Atlas website hosts a variety of maps that highlight community values, marine conservation and natural riches in and around the Strait of Georgia.

A Map of How We Live, Work & Play in the Georgia Strait   

The Atlas' main map provides a wide variety of information about places around the Georgia Strait. You can explore the places of interest much like a simple Google Map, and each place has an information balloon with details about the location.  The map features four information layers (Conservation & Sustainability, Human Use & Community, Natural Riches, and Local Knowledge) to make browsing easier, and to help illustrate how we truly coexist with the ocean and it's shores that we call home.  Learn More about the Information Layers
