"Indigenous Mapping" is a citizen science project for Indigenous communities who observe and gather data in places with significant ecological and cultural meaning.
This project supports Indigenous communities in collecting, safeguarding and sharing precious local knowledge, including environmental science data, elders’ wisdom, Indigenous place names, and learning resources for culture-based education.
Youth, elders, family, teachers, and other community members work together to submit cultural and ecological data that they’ve gathered, and the community sets “permissions" for who can access the information that is shared.
The following maps and tools will allow you to explore, visualize and analyze Indigenous Mapping community observations that have been gathered and made available since 2017 on the FieldScope platform.
If you wish to connect or learn more about the project, you can find us online at: www.cultureandassessment.org
