Oil Sands Information PortalEntry ID: osip
Abstract: The Oil Sands Information Portal is a one-window source for individuals interested in the environmental impacts of oil sands development. The portal focuses on the cumulative effects of development on the oil sands region’s Air, Water, Land, Climate Change and Biodiversity/Wildlife. The portal has both an interactive map display and a data library.
The interactive map allows users to quickly ... select and view information such as details and locations of all oil sands operations, the location of regional monitoring stations, and surface mining disturbance and reclamation. The data displayed on the map is for the most recent reporting period for any given reporting system (some systems report annually while others report as frequently as every fifteen minutes).
The data library is intended to act as a searchable data repository. The data library provides related reports, static images, links, graphs, and tables that allow users to understand trends, or review information in greater depth, or using a different visual representation. The data library also includes historical data.
