Canadian Atlas Online
  • General public
A new IPY module is being developed for the Canadian Atlas Online, which will provide background on IPY and an interactive map with locations and descriptions of the 52 IPY research projects funded by the Government of Canada. Users will be able to learn more about the history of IPY, the research themes and projects themselves. Click on a project name and beacon or transect will appear to indicate the locations of the research projects. The viewer will be able to peruse project overviews, photos, videos, other graphics, and external links. Thematic modules will provide users access to fun and educational games and quizzes. The Canadian Geographic Online Atlas is a great educational tool for teachers, students, and inquiring minds. The new IPY section of the Canadian Atlas Online will be launched in late fall 2009.
