PCIC updates Plan2Adapt

Three major upgrades improve usability and provide more detailed climate information. PCIC has launched an updated version of its online tool for assessing regional climate change throughout BC. The new version is available at and includes three major upgrades. First, the maps have been improved—users can now zoom and pan the map windows, overlay layers such as parks, and click on the map to see historical and future projected values. Second, the regional districts have been updated to the current boundaries and new region types such as health authority boundaries have been added. Finally, the impacts tab that provides a list of possible impacts based on the projected climate change for the region of interest is now based on a preliminary set of rules—based on expert opinion—that have been peer reviewed. This list of impacts is intended to provide a starting point for more detailed local assessment of climate change impacts. If you have any feedback on the new features, please feel free to contact us.
