Digital Mapping

Lands Protection staff provide advice and resources to the CEC, other Tłįchǫ Government departments, working groups, and where appropriate, Tłįchǫ citizens about Tłįchǫ lands by: storing and sharing maps; developing and maintaining information about Tłįchǫ land in general, and specifically about important sites and areas by developing and maintaining a Geographical Information System (GIS) about Tłįchǫ land that captures, stores, analyses, manages and presents data with reference to geographic location data. A GIS Traditional Knowledge Database was initiated in 1993 and has been developed through transcribing traditional history related to Tłįchǫ place names and a Data Collection Project, on the land, led by elders and recording the information into a series of digital maps.
