Survey Monument Information
Nanaimo is situated in Integrated Survey Area (ISA) #20. The ISA boundaries are controlled by the Surveyor Generals Office and the published listings of the survey monuments are controlled by GeoBC. You can download monument coordinates on the GeoBC Management of Survey Control Operations and Tasks (MASCOT) website. Approximately 1200 survey monuments have been installed across Nanaimo, with the listings in Zone 10 UTM coordinates. The Surveyor General approves and publishes these results, and the ISA has enabled the City of Nanaimo to build a strong cadastral base for our growing Geographic Information System.
