In May 2019, the SKT was given the opportunity to present the Maps Portal at the annual Canadian Cartographic Association Conference held at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George. The title of the presentation was “Collaborative Mapping: The Skeena Maps Portal”. It was presented by Lizzy Hoffman, a Data Management Specialist from Eclipse Geomatics Ltd. which is the principal contractor of the SKT.
The Maps Portal is an online mapping platform that allows users to view and download spatial layers, create maps and enables collaboration between the users. In addition, the users also have the ability to store spatial layers publicly or privately and securely share it with other users. Currently, the maps portal has a total of 145 layers and 40 maps.
