UBC Library digitizes GVRD maps

A Greater Vancouver land-use map series is now available online thanks to the successful completion of a digitization project by the Library’s Digital Initiatives unit. This series of 596 detailed maps was produced in 1971, 1981 and 1983 by the Greater Vancouver Regional District (now Metro Vancouver) and is held in UBC Library’s Map and Atlas Collection.

The maps, printed in black and white, are used by UBC students in urban planning and geography, and are frequently consulted by the local business community, specifically environmental engineers, site remediation consultants and property development firms.
