Trail Inventory

In 2010 we gathered extensive trails data in the Dawson municipality area, including GPS tracks, waypoints, trail photographs, and detailed notes on things such as trail condition, grade, surface etc. We are currently developing this information into a user-friendly trails inventory GIS database. By doing so, we will gain an information resource designed for access by laypersons, but sophisticated enough that it can be utilized by municipal and regional planners. 

The benefit of this GIS database will become evident in several ways: we will be able to share the information readily; we can overlay trails information with other relevant information such as land ownership, stakeholder interests, historic and archaeological significance; and good quality maps can be developed for planning and public consultation purposes.
