Maps of the European Arctic win 2006 British Cartographic Society Awards

In the last quarter of 2005 ERA developed a GIS database and digital map products of the European Arctic for Ocean Futures, based in Oslo, Norway. The work was part of a broader initiative by Ocean Futures undertaken for the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (Næringslivets Hovedorganisasjon (NHO)). We worked closely with Ocean Futures and the US-based design company UnParalleled to deliver both paper and electronic products.

The aim of the project was to highlight infrastructure, industrial activities and environmental issues in the European Arctic, especially in the region of the Norwegian and Barents Seas. The products cover a range of themes including fisheries, oil and gas development, transport networks, maritime jurisdiction, forestry, energy and minerals resources. The web-based versions are available at the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO). The maps are presented using Macromedia Flash 8: to open the maps press "Klikk her", wait for the download and then use the arrows to operate the menus. It is expected that English versions will be developed in due course.
