The Nova Scotia Wind Atlas is a project of the Nova Scotia Department of Energy developed in a partnership with the K.C. Irving Chair in Sustainable Development at the University of Moncton and the Applied Geomatics Research Group at the Nova Scotia Community College.
The Mi’kmaw Place Names atlas includes an online interactive map with more than 700 place names derived from approximately 1500 names collected throughout Nova Scotia from interviews with Mi’kmaw Elders and others.
It includes pronunciation, translations, etymology, and other features, such as photos and videos of some of the interviews. The user has the ability to customize the map by selecting various GIS layers including hydrology, terrain elevation, historical maps of Nova Scotia and much more.
The Association of Nova Scotia Land Surveyors is a self-governing body, established to maintain standards of professional ethics, knowledge and skill among its members; and to regulate the practice of professional land surveying in order to protect the public.
