The Gazetteer of British Columbia is a spreadsheet of all official place names, their feature type, feature code, mapsheet, latitude & longitude. The Gazetteer is extracted daily from the BC Geographical Names Information System (BCGNIS), the master database of British Columbia place names.
The Gazetteer of British Columbia is now available free of charge as a Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values (csv) file. Feature Definitions and a Feature Code & Category Hierarchy are also included as separate attachments, to allow users to customize their own subset of the Gazetteer.
Gazetteer file size is approximately 3 MB.
