The UNESCO Southwest Nova Region is internationally recognized for its unique biodiversity, scientific activity and geographic location downwind from mainland North America. Many institutions and agencies carry out research and collect critical data here of regional, and international importance.
The Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve Association has partnered with the Nova Scotia Community College, Centre for Geographic Sciences and the Government of Nova Scotia to develop a unique software application to increase access to ecological data for students, educators, land managers and the general public.
We invite you to explore this innovative “Interactive Science Atlas” based on ‘open science/open data’ principles with your computer. Geopositioned access to landscape information is also accessible using portable devices including smartphones and tablets.
For added functionality, on your smart phone, try the Nova Scotia Science Atlas LITE version.
