Developed by the Northern Sustainable Development Research Chair and Caribou Ungava, this online map shows the interactions between mining development, migratory caribou herds, and land use by Indigenous communities in Northern Quebec. The map offers a user-friendly interface that lets the visitors view information on territories, regions, and populations of Northern Québec, infrastructures (roads, active mines, mines under development, and abandoned mines), potential development sites (exploration sites and mining claims), land use and the environmental knowledge of local communities as well as the range of the migratory caribou, migration corridors, and zones of avoidance of human infrastructures. Geospatial data are part of the PhD of Sabrina Plante, under the supervision of Pr Steeve Plante (Laval University), and Isabel Lemus-Lauzon collected data on land use, under the supervision of Pr Thierry Rodon.
