To guide sustainable land use decisions in Canada’s north, the federal government is investing $100 million in a Geo-mapping for Energy Minerals (GEM) program. This program seeks to fill in critical geoscience information gaps; however, collecting this data across vast areas such as Nunavut and the Northwest Territories is both costly and complex. In response, NRCan leveraged GIS to develop an innovative Geological Map Flow (GMF).
