Indigenous Mapping Workshop
The Indigenous Mapping Workshop is an annual 4-day event that provides geospatial training and opportunities for Indigenous communities in North America. The Indigenous Mapping Workshop and its strategic partners are dedicated to the development and advancement of culturally appropriate and inclusive geospatial technologies for Indigenous communities. During the workshop, participants learn and share geospatial tools and work flows to collect, host, visualize, share, and publish community-generated spatial data. Sessions explore current and relevant themes, such as traditional land use and occupancy studies, environmental monitoring, community planning, negotiations, health, inter-generational knowledge transfer, and reconciliation.
