Description:
EcoMAP (Ecological Mapping Analysis and Protocols) is a suite of geospatial data sets and analysis applications which has been developed by GeoInsight Corporation and A.M. Turner and Associates over the past three years with support from a number of government agencies. EcoMAP is built on the premise that by aggregating diverse data sets to a common geographic framework, spatial analysis can be used to derive and present complex ecological information. Such information is needed to guide the development of consistent policies and programs which are required for conservation and sustainable resource management. Parts of the EcoMAP database have also been used to present a national perspective of many ecological themes through the National Atlas of Canada. In order to provide continuity the EcoMAP name has been adopted for the National Atlas ecological module. - ecozones- ecoprovinces- ecoregions- ecodistricts

Description:
Designed for a broad range of disciplines, SpatiaLABS complements and enhances an instructor's course with self-directed investigations that help students increase their spatial reasoning and analytical skills. Created by educators and peer reviewed, SpatiaLABS provides students in the physical, social, and applied sciences with 64 lessons on topics including environmental studies, business, urban studies, and spatial statistics. Students develop GIS and cartography skills during these investigations; however, the primary objective of SpatiaLABS is to teach students how to approach and solve geospatial problems. Although each activity has been written with skill prerequisites in mind—from no GIS ability to advanced GIS project experience—SpatiaLABS exercises are customizable, allowing educators to adapt them to student capabilities or use local data, when appropriate.
