May 26 – 28, 2020
We are pleased to announce our Canadian Indigenous Mapping Workshop in Regina, Saskatchewan, from May 26 – 28, 2020. The IMW in Regina will host up to 150 participants. Training will cover an array of different geospatial tools provided by NASA, Google and Esri Canada . Participants will learn how to use these tools to collect, host, visualize, share, and publish community generated data and better understand how to apply these skills to issues impacting Saskatchewan’s Indigenous communities. The technical training will be co-led by The Firelight Group, NASA, Google Earth Outreach, Google’s Trainer Network, Esri Canada, and a global network of Indigenous mapping experts.
