Since the community is responsible for the territory and it is their responsibility to maintain it, the collection of this data is essential to the preservation of their living environment.
Simon’s participation during the training week allowed to make a reminder of best practices for the use of our intelligent mapping platform, in addition to better understanding the needs of communities regarding eVouala. Simon also took the opportunity to accompany them in their data collection activities. There’s nothing like going directly to the field to understand the extent of it!
Fun fact: Simon visited several pingos (ice volcanoes) during his visit, some of which can reach up to 16 stories. There are over 1,300 pingos in Tuktoyaktuk.
