heard mention of it somewhere on here
tried it for the first time tonight and found this old town site
Aldermere 1905 to 1915 first town in the Bulkley valley
died after the railway came thru
soon as the snow goes me and my metal dectors are heading out there
it's only 11 km from my house

Google Earth is a great map tool. Go to DataBC and get the GE kml webserver overlays. The "BC Web Map Library" contains all the server conections.

The Page is: DataBC - Web Map Services (http://www.data.gov.bc.ca/dbc/geo/wms/index.page) Link (http://www.data.gov.bc.ca/dbc/geo/wms/index.page)
The KML is: http://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/kml/BCGov_Web_Map_Library.kml Link (http://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/kml/BCGov_Web_Map_Library.kml)
All of the data on the MTO maps and iMap is available, olaims, contours, creek names, roads and so on.
