The purpose of the Skeena Maps Portal is to provide a collaborative mapping environment to complement the capabilities of the Skeena Salmon Data Centre. The Skeena Maps Portal can be used to view and share spatial data layers, combine layers into maps, and perform basic exploratory analyses.
The Skeena Maps Portal is built using open-source GeoNode software. GeoNode is a web-based application and platform for developing geospatial information systems (GIS) and for deploying spatial data infrastructures (SDI). For more information on GeoNode, see http://geonode.org.
The Skeena Maps Portal contains spatial data layers sourced from the BC and federal governments, conservation organizations, First Nations governments, and custom layers created for projects.
