Map of lakes sampled in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In the map above, for each lake, the size of the circle indicates one of our three size classes (small is 0.1-0.5 km2, medium is 0.5- 5 km2, large is 5-100 km2). The colour indicates our human impact index (green is low, yellow is moderate, red is high). Click here for interactive map.
The Water Portal team works with diverse groups across Canada. By sharing our research findings in an accessible & user-friendly way, we will contribute to a common knowledge base that can inform conversations & decision making:
- Automated lake reports
- Interactive tools
- For over 80,000 lake watersheds, maps on land use and a human impact index
- Policy briefs on some of our key findings
- Recommendations on technical aspects, such as on how to develop a geospatial environmental database, an online portal, standardized protocols for lake sampling, and more.
