ICI Society is deploying a new FTP Server to continue to provide access to the best available geospatial data across BC. After the upgrade on November 16, the following enhancements will be available:

  • In addition to FTP & FTPS, the new GeoShare service will included SFTP and HTTPS – the Data Catalog will be available via web browser
  • Users will be able to manage their account settings via the browser interface, including the ability to change passwords and reset forgotten passwords

All GeoShare services will be unavailable between 7AM – 9AM PST on Wednesday, November 16 but data packages will return to normal next week. Existing FTP users should not notice any major changes after the deployment.

Please contact us if you are unable to access the FTP site after the rollout on Wednesday, November 16.
