New Continental Mapping Tools for Today’s GIS Enthusiast


November 18, 2020
12:30 – 1:30 PM EST


How CEC mapping products can help you think outside the national bounding box

In celebration of GIS day, learn about the North American Environmental Atlas, including a new 2010-2015 land cover change layer that displays landscape changes across the continent at 30-metre resolution. The North American Environmental Atlas combines and harmonizes geospatial data from Canada, Mexico and the United States to allow for a continental and regional perspective on environmental issues.

The workshop will be hosted on Zoom and simultaneous interpretation to Spanish and French will be provided.
