UArctic thematic maps

UArctic thematic maps

UArctic North2North exchangesNordpil was contracted by the University of the Arctic secretariat to prepare a new set of maps to communicate the interlinkages and connections among the secretariat's member institutions. The thematic networks and North2North exchange programs form a web that includes more than 100 institutions in a dozen countries around the circumpolar north.

The raw data was provided in Excel spreadsheets and manipulated in a relational database to be crossreferenced and georeferenced into attractive map outputs.

In addition to map illustrations for web and print publications, a Google Earth project was prepared in kml. This presentation enables full exploration and interactivity for examining the thematic networks under the University of the Arctic umbrella.

The thematic networks map can be downloaded from the UArctic Atlas website.
