Advocacy for a Cartographic Digitization Registry & Discussion (in English)

Léon Robichaud, University of Sherbrooke
Erin Forward, Queen’s University

Cartographic digitization projects are sprouting up all across the country. As more and more collections of maps are digitized, the importance of keeping track of these maps and making sure they are widely accessible is becoming a greater challenge. This presentation will provide an overview of several registry options including an overview of the registry work being done at the Université de Sherbrooke followed by a project proposal of how ACMLA can assist with the access to digitized, georeferenced, vectorized and HGIS projects from across the country. There will be time for discussion and to provide feedback regarding interest in this initiative.
