Indigenous Mapping Workshop

The Indigenous Mapping Workshops help support geospatial capacity building to further generate programs, and resources to promote Indigenous Peoples’ ability to collect, analyze, and visualize community-based geospatial information.

The Indigenous Mapping Workshop and its strategic partners are dedicated to the development and advancement of culturally appropriate and inclusive geospatial technologies for Indigenous leadership, agencies, and communities to support Indigenous rights and interests.

The 2019 Indigenous Mapping Workshop in Inuvik is targeted towards Canada’s northern communities and will host up to 75 participants. It will explore the NWT Geomatics Portal, Inuvialuit Settlement Region Online Platform, Google, Esri Canada, QGIS, Mapbox, OpenStreetMap, and other geospatial tools.
