Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (G.I.S) are a computerized means to consolidate and analyze spatially-referenced data.  G.I.S is a powerful planning tool that helps implement governance and management of our traditional territories, formal land claims processes, traditional knowledge mapping,  and manage resources on traditional lands. G.I.S plays a major role in Indigenous Community Planning on Nipissing First Nation. Inter-departmentally, G.I.S assists with requests related to project planning.
