This made-in-the-North Strategy will guide the effective long-term stewardship of our water resources. The Strategy’s development process has been led by a committee of Aboriginal and government representatives that have worked hard to ensure the voices of NWT residents have been heard on issues related to ecosystem health, sustainable development and the socio-cultural importance of water.
With the NWT Ecosystem Classification Photo Map you can view the thousands of photographs collected as part of the NWT Ecosystem Classification program, visually documenting the NWT landscape.
Photos taken along the displayed flight lines are viewable by zooming in to a minimum scale of 1:1,000,000 then hovering over a photo point to pop-up the image(s) at that location. Once zoomed in, the flight lines turn off and the photo points become visible.
You can also generate reports of a selected photo(s) and its attributes by using the 'Create a Photo Summary Report'. Use the drawing tools to make a selection.
Both map viewers can be launched in a web browser.
The browser requires Silverlight 4.0 plug-in and minimum screen resolution of 1024x768.
