Historical Atlas of Canada
The Historical Atlas of Canada Online Learning Project is intended to make the maps and data generated for the Atlas available to a wider audience by re-designing them for the Internet. This is being accomplished by creating a web site which includes conventional text and image pages, but where the main focus is on interactive maps. By enabling users to zoom in and out on map displays, turn map layers on or off, and access the tables of data behind the maps, the map-viewing experience becomes active exploration of the data and themes presented. The Atlas uses thematic mapping to describe events, issues or patterns in Canada's development.
The Historical Atlas of Canada Online Learning Project owes its existence to the researchers, authors, editors, editorial boards, and publishers of the original Historical Atlas of Canada published in 1993, and its funding agencies. These included federal government research agencies, provincial ministries and some private donors.
