Web-Based Geospatial Analysis Tool, 2012–2013

Lead: Jason Duffe, Environment Canada

The BREA Toolkit GIS applications are universal to record baseline information and for map production. However, increasingly advanced GIS capabilities such as scenario analysis and cumulative effects analysis are being included in Regional Environmental Assessments. The main geospatial tools of interest to Regional Environmental Assessments in general are digital mapping, spatial analysis/assessment, and spatial modeling. A web-based GIS tool has the potential to enhance transparency and public participation and be an effective way of communicating to decision makers and the public.
