Projects > British Columbia Biodiversity Atlas

Caslys developed a series of maps to help quantify the current state of biodiversity in the province of B.C. The work is part of the B.C. Biodiversity Action Plan. A key part of this assessment is the completion of a series of spatial analyses conducted within a GIS to help quantify current conditions: species and ecosystem irreplaceability, ecosystem loss, road density, temperature and precipitation change, air pollution, and timber harvesting. The results were then summarized in two atlases (Taking Nature's Pulse: The Status of Biodiversity in British Columbia and the Biodiversity Atlas of British Columbia) providing a ‘management picture’ to both help inform the Biodiversity Action Plan and present the results more effectively to stakeholders and the general public. More information on the atlases is available at:
