The PSF Data Centre provides three direct access methods for data. Access method 1 is the simplest method, and is set up for those that want manual access to data (viewing and downloading data), while Access method 2 and Access method 3 are for GIS users. See “Data Access” below for detailed instructions.
We aim to provide a “one-stop shop” for data. To this end, we provide information on Strait of Georgia data that can be found within this Data Centre, as well as in other existing databases and locations. Clicking on the different categories will allow you information on 1) all the data that is within this SoG Data Centre, 2) links to custodians that can provide other data sets that cannot be directly downloaded from our Data Centre, as well as 3) links to other existing data search engines where data can be immediately downloaded. See “Data Sets” below.
We have also developed a map-based video and photograph library. This provides data in the form of historical and current photographs from around the Strait of Georgia, and videos from the First Nations Ecological Knowledge Project and from the Community Perspectives project. See “Photograph and Video Resources” below.
