Disagree with the low importance ranking[edit]

I disagree that it is a low importance project, as Soda Creek was the head of navigation for sternwheelers in the Cariboo and several were built there, making it an important historic site. Anyway, I added a picture and a map, but I feel very dumb... as I don't know how to put the dot on the map!I will figure it out later, hopefully. CindyBo 10:18, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Maps[edit]

See my Help desk comments about finding coordinates for Soda Creek. I think Image:Williams Lake, British Columbia Location.png is good enough to re-use here for the area map, because the location rectangle probably includes (or nearly includes) the Soda Creek area at the large map scale. The effort of drawing another map just to slightly adjust the location rectangle northward is probably not justifiable. (It would be nice if someone wrote a template that would show the map and draw the location rectangle automatically from coordinate input fields.) I also added a {{coord}} to the article. Unfortunately, the resulting page of links does not have a link to one of the best map sites for this location, the Atlas of Canada. Even more unfortunately, I cannot see how to link to a specific location map in the Atlas of Canada. Everyone would have to browse there and manually type in the six input fields for the DMS coordinates (ugh). --Teratornis 18:53, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

I poked around some more on Atlas of Canada and found the Gazetteer Map Service. Here is search result for Soda Creek. The site somewhat oddly displays search result links that display not maps, but pages which display raw URLs:
Clicking on those URLs does show maps of Soda Creek, but at a 1:5,000,000 scale, which is pretty zoomed out. I still do not see how to generate a link to a map of an arbitrary location in Canada with the scale and other features I want to select. It probably can be done, since I can see some larger and more hideous map URLs by clicking on the above links. I might ask if any of the map-expert members of WP:GEO know how to work efficiently with Atlas of Canada. --Teratornis 21:37, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the map, some of that technical stuff is a bit beyond me.CindyBo 05:26, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

I improved what I could[edit]

I added a bunch of new photos and clarified a few things. I hope it isn't overkill on the photos, but they're all too great to leave any of them out. Hopefully someone will expand this article soon and it won't look like it's all pictures.CindyBo 05:26, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Expanded quite a bit now, looks better, but more local First Nation's history would be nice, but I don't have and can't find very much more information on Soda Creek past what I put in here.CindyBotalk 21:36, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Soda Creek Bridge[edit]

List of crossings of the Fraser River says there's a road bridge at Soda Creek; is this still the old suspension-span type like the old ones at Dog Creek, Lillooet etc? i.e. is it the same bridge, or is the current road bridge a new one? The old one needs an article, but more on that later.Skookum1 (talk) 03:34, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
