Oil Sands Information Portal


Esri Canada’s Award of Excellence was awarded to this web GIS portal about Alberta’s oil sands yesterday. The tool is a web data portal that allows users to add and remove a number of different layers relating to the operation and future of the oil sands. The primary focus of the tool is to visualize the location of operations or the location of other things that relate to the oil sands. The tool is provides much needed information about the operations of the oil sands, however it suffers from a slightly blurry background, overly detailed symbols, and slow loading (ex. tailings ponds). The tool was developed using ArcGIS API for JavaScript.
