RICHMOND, BC, July 7, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —

RICHMOND, BC, July 7, 2014 /CNW/ - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. ("MDA" or the "Company") ( TSX: MDA), a global communications and information company, announced today that it has signed a contract valued at CA$14 million with the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) to provide an operational electronic parcel map solution known as ParcelMap BC.

Under this project, MDA will design and implement a GIS-based system for the LTSA to create and maintain a single, complete, trusted and sustainable representation of British Columbia's integrated parcel fabric.  The project also involves consolidating existing surveyed Crown parcel data, and titled land parcel data originally held in over 180 disparate local government datasets, into a single operational database with each parcel connected to the Land Title Register or Crown Land Registry.

ParcelMap BC will provide a complete visual representation of British Columbia's land parcels, which represents the current state of surveyed and titled parcels on Crown and private land. This information will allow the LTSA to deliver vital information about land to private industry, government and the general public.

LTSA President and Chief Executive Officer Godfrey Archbold said, "The LTSA is pleased to work with MDA and thanks stakeholders for their contributions in making the ParcelMap BC initiative a reality."
