The Okanagan Habitat Atlas (OHA) is an interactive mapping tool hosted by the Community Mapping Network (CMN) and UBC-Okanagan. The OHA provides access to map layers of sensitive habitats and species distribution in the Okanagan Basin of BC. Data on the OHA is meant to give the public open access to regional habitat information and to assist land-use planning processes throughout the Okanagan Basin.
