It would appear that delorme doesn't make the Atlas & Gazetteer for Canada.

So does anyone know of something of similar quality for British Columbia?

Backroads something or other. Maybe backroads atlas? The other option is to use the interwebz. There are some fine maps that can be found.

They can be wildly inaccurate and outdated though .
Hmmmm, well that's encouraging.

A shame, I really like keeping the WA atlas/gazetteer in my truck. Very handy. Don't understand why they don't make them for canada.

I may just end up loading an old iphone with some sort of map pack or GPS setup.

I have a backroads book for BC if you want to borrow it. I fish BC quite often. Based upon my experiences have to use various maps like the backroads books, join internet BC fishing forums and talk to locals up there in fly shops and on the water and get out and fish and take notes.

I have yet to find one good source of fly fishing info for BC.

The base maps for the gazetteer come from US Government sources. The primary base series they use is the US Census Tiger files. http://www.census.gov/geo/maps-data/data/tiger.html

Not sure how Canada does their census. They might not do a map set to check for residents.

Also as I understand it the Canadian government "sells" their data, whereas, all the US Government maps are in public domain. The US Government could do pretty well selling GPS access, maps, and other stuff that is free!!
