Crown Land Grant Reference Map Viewer

Here’s the link:

http://geonb.snb.ca/GRP/index.html

The underlying map is a little different than other versions I’ve seen (I’ve seen six or seven versions so far).

The yellow grant reference points include the lot number, date of the grant and a full name. The grant number can be cross-referenced with the “Index to New Brunswick Land Grants, 1784 – 1997 (RS686)” at PANB: https://archives.gnb.ca/Search/RS686/Introduction.aspx?culture=en-CA.

When you zoom in to the map, (controls are hidden in upper left) you can see the modern subdivisions. You can hide the map (Basemap in upper right) to reveal aerial photos.
