The objective of this project is to conduct a feasibility study on the use of geographic inforamtion systems (GIS) as tools for long-term monitoring of the Reindeer herd in the Beaufort-delta region. This project will focus on research based in Inuvik using GIS equipment and library resources. Logistical requirements may potentially require travel to Richards Island, Atkinson Point and Husky La...
