Developments in the Nunaliit Cybercartographic Atlas Framework
This chapter describes the substantial improvements made to the Nunaliit Cybercartographic Atlas Framework since 2014. Three major challenges were identified at that time: different project data needs; local Internet availability; and the complexity of devices, formats and tools for contributing content. Considerable progress has been made in the response to these ongoing challenges. A number of recent developments in the platform are described including model-driven maps and styling, the integration of Garmin In Reach GPS devices, new semantic relationships, and D3js integration. The chapter concludes with a consideration of future developments of Nunaliit.
