Needed: Drone / Ground Videographer
Organization: FreshwaterVI
Location: Vancouver Island, BC

FreshwaterVI is a collaborative platform for mapping and exploring fresh water resources on Vancouver Island. We invite you to contribute drone and ground video of streams, rivers, lakes and estuaries to build a comprehensive Google Map showcasing the Island’s water resources.

  • We edit your footage for free
  • Then upload the finished video to the FreshwaterVI Resource Map for all to enjoy, with full credits to you
  • We return high-resolution and social-ready versions of the video to you

We also provide a range of tools for Canadian Drone Pilots including training courses, guides, and videos for improving piloting and business skills, as well as staying up-to-date on regulations.

Here’s how to get involved…

  • You upload your drone/ground footage of Vancouver Island freshwater systems, and include any other information about the area.
  • We create a 3-5 minute video from your submission and attach it to the Resource Map, which is in an accessible Google Maps format.
  • If you already have a finished video that fits with the FreshwaterVI objectives, please get in touch.
  • You get credited for your submission as a contributor.
  • We will also post the most recent finished video on our home page, add it to our YouTube channel and Instagram
  • We feature the latest 10 videos on the Resource Map webpage.

Go to to take part in this great project!

Here’s just a screenshot from the website of a detailed local map – the Kw'a'luxw (Englishman) River Watershed. With your help, we will build one for each of the 115 main watersheds on the island, add more feature layers, and embed location icons that link to the videos that we create. To see how this all works, you can explore the interactive version of this watershed on our website, and then click on the yellow icon to view a video of the Kw'a'luxw (Englishman) River estuary.

Thanks for reading. We believe that this could be a great project for environmental groups looking to raise awareness and support (you can embed any of our maps in your website) as well as an educational resource for schools and communities throughout this amazing island.
