  24. 24. Cybercartographic Atlases Cybercartography is a new theoretical construct proposed by D.R. Fraser Taylor (1997, 2003). It is the organization, presentation, analysis and communication of spatially referenced information on a wide variety of topics of interest and use to society in an interactive, dynamic, multimedia, multisensory and multidisciplinary format. Beyond its multiple specificities (Taylor, 2003), cybercartography offers an unprecedented opportunity for deeply rethinking the way we design, produce, disseminate and use maps on the Internet. These changes require a new cartographic paradigm that can be approached from different perspectives.
  25. 25. ISIUOP – Participatory Data Collection Data & Software - Nunaliit Cybercartographic Atlas Framework (BSD) - Geogratis Framework & Topographic Data (Unrestricted terms of use) - Flow lines collected by different hunters (Shared rights) - More sensitive data – e.g. Bear Dens, sacred sites, environmentally sensitive data are for viewing & use by the community only - Data will become part of IPY Canada
  26. 26. Nunaliit iPad Data Capture app Community: • Wished access was faster and atlas and data were housed in community • Wished adding content was easier • Needed flexibility for types of data and metadata to be saved and how to present it Nunaliit: • Distributed network of replicating nodes, including nodes in communities, and on mobile • Simplified data collection app replaces half a dozen devices for offline data collection • Document oriented database with data and applications loosely connected via flexible schema system
