About this Map

The Winnipeg&Region GreenMap Project was initiated in 1999, by David van Vliet in an Urban Ecology Course where three students prepared an initial list of city sites. These have been added to over time. A distinguishing feature of this map are the more detailed "place study" descriptions, now over 100 in number, undertaken mostly by students between 2000 and 2007. Others are being added. The Version 1 website design was drafted in 2002 for posting to a server for review, comment and further development. A Version 2 Map is in development, in partnership with the Manitoba Eco-Network GIS/Mapping Centre (Anke Kirch, Manager. In the GIS based Version 2 map we will be able to integrate official city data, with our Version 1 data, plus detailed unique content at the neighbourhood scale, on a google map base. We intend the neighbourhood pilot map and the full Version 2 map to be ready later in 2008. While the map includes a number of sites across Manitoba, we will host a meeting of Manitoba Eco-Network member organizations in mid 2008 to review and nominate further content. The scope of mapping will then extend to the entire province.
