Eclipse Geomatics has provided GIS and cartographic services to the natural resources sector since 2006. Many of our projects are focused within Northwest BC, with a few select projects spanning across Alberta as well as nationally.
Our GIS projects focus on a diverse range of values including ecological, wildlife habitat, archaeological overview assessments, and wild salmon policy indicator analysis. Our cartographic work to date includes BC Park Management Plans, the Babine River Map Atlas, Lake Babine Nation Interpretive Centre Posters, as well as the Northwest BC Infrastructure Map series (2010, 2014, 2019).
Canadian National Vegetation Classification
Working with the ecological experts at Natural Resources Canada, the Yukon Government, Province of BC, as well as additional experts from various provinces across Canada, Eclipse Geomatics provided the technical services to update the spatial information that comprises the Canadian National Vegetation Classification.

Upper Bulkley Fish and Aquatic Review
The Upper Bulkley watershed is situated within the Skeena watershed east of Houston, BC. The Upper Bulkley River is a significant salmon bearing river experiencing threats to salmon habitat from many diverse pressures. The Upper Bulkley Fish and Aquatic Project focused on GIS analysis of select pressure and quantity indicators as determined by the Wild Salmon Policy. Pressure Indicators analyzed include road density (https://data.skeenasalmon.info), riparian disturbance (https://data.skeenasalmon.info), stream crossing density (https://data.skeenasalmon.info), and total land cover alteration (https://data.skeenasalmon.info).
Thresholds determined by the Wild Salmon Policy were applied to the road density, riparian disturbance, and stream crossing density results.
