Using GIS to Assist Stewardship Groups in the Columbia Basin — Katie Ericson - 2019-07-09
For many, the most loved feature of this area is the abundance of water, whether it be for sustaining life, the beautiful forests and wildlife or the recreational activities that bring us joy.

With this valuable resource comes many threats, like pollution or degradation from forestry being too close to the water source.
Musings of a Rural Resident — Mark Trueman - 2019-07-02
I entered the ADGIS program in the fall of 2018 wide eyed after a 25 year hiatus from formal academic learning.

This is a three year project exploring open data best practices, policy and delivery option in a rural setting (please visit this website for more information https://www.ruralopendata.ca/). I was excited about this opportunity. One of the main themes I pulled out of my coursework during the ADGIS program was the importance of the availability and usability of data.
