To provide a hexagonal grid of BC. This grid is used for linking with aggregated data related to broadband internet service availability, but can also be used for other mapping purposes as required.
The boundary used to cut the hexagons at the provincial border is based on Government of Canada data.
This data is derived from the Hexagonal Grid of Canada provided by the Government of Canada under the Open Government Licence - Canada. It is based upon the historical Spectrum Management Grid Cells which were previously used by Innovation Science and Economic Development Canada for Spectrum licensing and management activities.
