E-Flora BC's interactive web maps allow you to explore the distribution of a species in BC and throughout North America. In addition to displaying distribution records for each species you can turn layers off or on.

Click on the Layers icon to access this feature.

Click on the ▷ beside a layer name in order to show the sublayers that you can turn on or off.

To turn layers on or off, for example the GBIF Observation Records or the BEC Map, scroll down to that layer and simply click on the layer name itself or on the eye icon ( 👁 ) beside the layer name.

If you have any questions about our maps, please contact us.
