GIS/Mapping

The Stewardship Department’s Geographic Information System (GIS) Team provides a wide range of mapping and data services to the Tŝilhqot’in National Government and member communities.

The GIS Analysts support the Nation’s goals of self-governance by collecting, and managing spatially recorded Traditional Use Study (TUS).  This information is used for, among other priorities, language preservation through place-names, arguing strength of claim, and assessment of land-use proposals in context of sensitive cultural uses.

The GIS team also produces maps and summaries for consideration in discussion of land-use planning, and decision making; liaising with Tŝilhqot’in National Government staff and external sources on spatial data capture, manipulation and symbolization; They aide the Tŝilhqot’in communities in emergency preparedness and housing maps; and advancing economic development initiatives in the Tŝilhqot’in communities and the Nation with mapping capabilities.
