Synopsis: The ITMB Map Pack for Fraser Valley, is now available. This package consists of 2 current maps Fraser Valley/Vancouver & North Vancouver /Port Coquitlam a $24.00 price if purchased separately - for only $16.95. Fraser Valley/Vancouver, Travel Ref. Map 1:250,000/1:50k scale, 3rd. Edition, double-sided. British Columbia (B.C.) Canada. This recreationally-oriented map covers the valley from the Pacific coast east through Vancouver and Chilliwack to Manning Park and goes north to Whistler and Cache Creek. Greater Vancouver, at 1:50,000 scale is on the reverse side as an added bonus. 92G06/92G07 North Vancouver /Port Coquitlam 1:50,000 This is history in the making. For the very first time, Canadian topo maps are being printed privately. This is an experiment, conducted by ITMB with the approval of the Government of Canada s Map Office, who nervously agreed to this venture, which is unique in Canada, and possibly elsewhere. Naturally, this map will find its best market opportunities locally, but these two maps of the north shore mountains are two of the most popular NTS maps in print. Actually, neither has been in print for quite some time and have been available only as print-on-demand plots. NTS, for National Topographic System, maps are government survey maps, similar in purpose to Ordnance Survey, IGN, Auslig, or USGS. It takes 13,500 separate maps at this scale to cover Canada (OS s 204 maps covers Britain; a drop in the bucket!). The maps are printed on plastic for durability, with North Vancouver 92G6 on one side and Port Coquitlam 92G7 on the other side, with two separate covers. This map is available only folded; anyone wanting flat copies will have to make do with a plotted copy. The government will not be reprinting either of these maps. Naturally, one can purchase these maps singly, but this is a marvelous opportunity to pick up all 2 maps as a package for $16.95. Normal trade discounts apply. This is a bargain, no doubt about it, and our reasoning in offering it is to jump-start American travel into exploring BC again. The maps are packaged in a transparent plastic zip-lock sleeve and are available.
