A web mapping system that provides the most geographically accurate source of Arctic data.

The Challenge:

Canada's far north is subject to numerous surveys, studies and reports looking at its fragile landscape, wildlife, weather, and the impact of climate change. Searching through this information for a specific piece of data can be time-consuming and frustrating.

The Solution:

ArcticConnect brings together valuable Arctic research and sensor data, publications, photographs and even artwork, to be accessed from a single, online user portal. This solution provides:

  • A single online resource for sharing natural and cultural Arctic data
  • A geographically accurate source of environmental data through a user-friendly interface
  • A publicly available app that enables anyone to upload and share their environmental monitoring information

How This Project Affects You:

Access to accurate, easy-to-understand and easy-to-use data will help citizens and policy makers make the most informed decision possible for the long term future and sustainability of the Arctic.
