About Geoscape Canada
The Geoscapes are a series of posters and resources materials for use by educators and communities, to help increase awareness and understanding of the role of the geosciences in our lives. They range from Geoscape posters and associated resources, Waterscapes which focus on water as an important resource for all of us, to Geovistas which combine engaging descriptions of geological features in the landscape with information on how they have influenced climate, ecology and culture. All of these resources were developed by the Geological Survey of Canada in collaboration with communities, provincial and territorial surveys as well as interested geoscientists and educators across the country.
To increase awareness of the important role that geoscience plays in all of our lives and to better inform Canadians about important geoscience issues in their communities.
People protect what they know. Canadian communities can be more sustainable if they understand their local geoscape, or geological landscape - their water resources, natural hazards, earth resources, and environmental services.
Geoscape Canada is led by the Geological Survey of Canada of Natural Resources Canada in partnership with provincial and municipal agencies and educators across the country.
