Review internal documents concerning planning processes and decisions which will be used to study how GIS are used in aboriginal lands and resource planning; info gathered and this process will be reviewed to understand the nature of TK for the community; people involved in planning and GIS activities will be interviewed so that their understandings of how the systems fit into planning & how probl...
Principal Investigator:Boyes, Donald M. Licenced Year(s):
The collection of the field data is required to calibrate satellite image clasifications and interpretations concerning water body measurements, plant community types, and sedimentation patterns. Field measurements will include measuring ground distances and recording plant characteristics. Nothing in the field area will be destroyed or removed....
Principal Investigator:Squires Taylor, Cindy Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and her team will conduct helicopter surveys of vegetation types. The field data will aid in the computer classification of satellite imagery. The results will be vegetation maps of the Mackenzie Valley, which can be plotted on paper or entered into a digital database on a geographic information system (GIS) for further analysis with other data such as wildlife habitat, forest fir...
Principal Investigator:Stenton, Douglas R. Licenced Year(s):
As part of the Environmental Technology Program of Arctic College this work will attempt to integrate Euro-Canadian science with Inuit traditional knowledge. The Peterhead Inlet site provides a context in which students/participants gain experience in the fundamentals of data analysis and recovery while exploring a diverse range of research topics....
