Map Technology
A couple novel technologies were deployed to place the maps online in a somewhat readable fashion. First all maps were rendered in lightweight Adobe FlashPaper. All maps are zoomable and, if you click the upper right corner of each map menu bar, can be presented at full screen size for ease of viewing.

A unique bit of JavaScript called AJAX was then used to hide maps within each page. For this reason both JavaScript and Flash must be enabled in order to access the maps.

The entire site is optimized for viewing with the Firefox Browser. Microsoft's Internet Explorer also works but not without some annoyances.

Geography
For those visiting from overseas [and those locals who flunked geography] the next three maps show various perspectives on the locale embraced by the content in BC Car-Free: Exploring Southwestern British Columbia Without a Car.

Signs and Symbols Used on the Maps
For the most part map symbols should be self-explanatory. Refer to the legend below when ambiguity strikes.
