Introducing the New Explore BC Interactive Map!
Destination BC has released a new Explore BC Interactive Map on its consumer website: HelloBC.com. ‘Maps’ has consistently ranked as a top search result on the site and the Maps page is one of the most visited pages.
The new Interactive Map integrates all our tagged content and makes it available in a variety of map views. This ‘real time’ tool provides travellers, and industry, with integrated content and business listings, on a map according to the taxonomy tags applied.
The redesigned and reorganized Maps page now provides the base collection of expected assets travellers look for—Highway Map, Driving Distances Grid, Ski Resorts Maps and Campsites Maps—with a new element containing the Interactive Map.
How does it work?
The new Interactive Map page is presented in a familiar Google map layout of British Columbia. Hovering over a selection on the map or list will highlight the content, and a click will launch details in the left panel and options to proceed to the target HelloBC.com content page, or see ‘directions’ to the referenced content on a Google map. All views on the map allow ‘zooming’ and ‘scrolling’, as expected on any Google map.
There are four primary categories to launch views, each providing views and subcategories for accessing deeper or more detailed content and views. These align with:
The ‘More’ option allows travellers to also generate four additional views for: visitor centres, BC regions, accommodations, and experience providers.
At present, all businesses participating in our HelloBC listings program are displayed on the various map views. Website visitors are able to view and access businesses listings according to taxonomy in a variety of ways. In the next iteration, users will be able to search for a business by name.
