BC 1 Call Mapping Requirements for Members

BC 1 Call utilizes base map information supplied by GIS Innovations as well as other reliable sources. The BC 1 Call base map consists of many levels of mapping attributes including cities, districts, grids, streets, highways, water and landmarks such as schools and fire departments.

It is the responsibility of each member company to ensure the location of their underground facilities is accurately identified and any changes or updates are forwarded to the one call centre. This information is key to ensuring that you are properly notified when an excavator intends to excavate or disturb the ground near your buried facilities. A member's database can be updated at anytime by providing BC 1 Call with the new information.

Mapping information received from members will be processed by BC 1 Call and placed on our validation site for review and validation by the member. For additional information on mapping requirements and compatible mapping software please click on the following link:
