2016 Indigenous Mapping Workshop: Indigenous Knowledge, Worldview, and Research

Maps can be a powerful visual representation of a community’s land use, rights, and interests. They can give added leverage in consultations and negotiations with government and industry.

The Indigenous Mapping Workshop will welcome more than 150 community practitioners from across North America to Vancouver, BC on November 7-10, 2016, for the 3rd annual Indigenous Mapping Workshop.

Sessions will explore various Google, Esri Canada, and QGIS tools, which participants can use to collect, host, visualize, share, and publish community data. The technical training will be co-led by members of the Google Earth Outreach, Esri Canada, and Indigenous mapping experts.

I attended this last year and it was fantastic! It has greatly informed my work with partners on our mapping tools and strategies.

@Frank_Pichel - interested?


@marenabrinkhurst thanks for sharing, and indeed this looks quite interesting! Schedule conflicts and program priorities prevent us from participating this year :cry: , but we are definitely planning ahead for 2017.
