MapPlace 2 is a web service created by the British Columbia Geological Survey that allows anyone with an Internet connection to efficiently mine multiple geoscience databases. In contrast to similar services, MapPlace 2 goes beyond simply displaying information. Databases are continuously updated and talk to each other, enabling users to conduct queries and generate custom results by connecting to current data from many sources. Relative to the original version, MapPlace 2 requires no plug-ins, is faster, handles larger datasets, accesses third-party base maps and imagery and, with a simpler more intuitive interface, is easier to use.
