The beta version of the Neptis Geoweb, an interactive mapping platform being developed by the Neptis Foundation was the focus of a talk by Executive Director Marcy Burchfield at The Latornell Conservation Symposium held at the Nottawasaga Inn Resort & Convention Centre in Alliston, Ontario.
The Latornell Conservation Symposium Tuesday to Thursday, 17 November - 19 November 2014 is one of Ontario's premier annual environmental events and provides a forum for practitioners, policy makers, nongovernment organizations, academics and businesses to network and discuss the challenges and opportunities in Ontario's conservation field.
The Neptis Geoweb allows, among other things, the ability to visualize how the Greater Toronto Region has grown in past decades and how it is slated to grow in the coming decades. It integrates mapping and statistics to inform discussions around planning issues and convey information about patterns of regional growth and change.
This year's Symposium theme was Growth and Transformation.
