Event Details

This session provides a basic introduction to the open-source Nunaliit mapping framework. Developed at Carleton’s Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre, the framework was originally created specifically for Indigenous communities to be able to document and analyze their own spatial data. First, we will provide an overview to the framework, including the creation of “schemas” which help define how to display and input documents that share a common set of attributes including geometries and relationships to other schemas. giving Nunaliit flexibility. We will also discuss how this structure is crucial for representing different forms of Indigenous Knowledge and TEK. Finally, we will demonstrate some of the other features of features of Nunaliit using a sandbox so that participants can try Nunaliit out for themselves.
