About this Event

The Firelight Group and its partners are pleased to announce our Canadian Indigenous Mapping Workshop in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, from October 8-10, 2019. The IMW in Inuvik is targeted towards Canada’s northern communities and will host up to 75 participants. The workshop will explore the NWT Geomatics Portal, Inuvialuit Settlement Region Online Platform, Google, Esri Canada, QGIS, Mapbox, OpenStreetMap, and other geospatial tools. Participants will learn how to use these tools to collect, host, visualize, share, and publish community generated data and better understand how to apply these skills to issues impacting Canada’s northern communities. The technical training will be co-led by The Firelight Group, Google Earth Outreach, Google’s Trainer Network, Esri Canada, Mapbox, and a global network of Indigenous mapping experts.
