  • Where are the wild fire?

  • Web Mercator Projection

    served 80% of world population well

    however, there are still people living in high latitude regionssuch as Canadians

  • Alternative?Deploy our own web mapping stacks. Open source

    servers supports multiple projects, right?

    OSM is free to use. Data is not a problem anymore! We can always download Planet.osm, load into a web mapping server and set up a cache, right?

    My friend, its a lot of work in order to display the locations of wildfire

  • A typical web mapping site for Arctic

  • Why so many applications still using Web Mercator Projections?

    Web Mercator-based tools provide great User Experiences (Developer Experience).

    Many easy-to-use API/SDKs

    Many tiles available with minimum response time

    Data available across pan-arctic regions

  • Arctic Web Map

  • Arctic Web Map
