The Tahltan Spatial Database Platform will provide a strong foundation for accessing, storing, and managing all spatial data related to Tahltan lands. The database will be a collection of information that permits the entry, storage, input, output, and organization of that data.

Project Overview

The goals for the Tahltan Spatial Database Platform are to deliver a platform that can achieve the following services:

  1. Easy ability to upload information, design and modify information collection for all programs, interpret and develop products to support programs, and design analysis outputs generated from field and office reporting;
  2. Automated analysis and outputs for Tahltan Stewardship Initiative (TSI) components, and department programs which can be used for internal or external uses (including the Internet);
  3. Security and protection of Tahltan knowledge;
  4. Reasonable capacity requirements for delivery of TSI components;
  5. Ease to communicate with leadership, membership, proponents, and other governments;
  6. Efficient and affordable maintenance and updates by a third party;
  7. Technical support and training options for selected TSI personnel; number of users, hardware, upload and download speeds;
  8. Annual cost of operating the platform;
  9. Types of products, analysis, and data management needed for TSI; and
  10. Bandwidth and technical capacity requirements to meet the current bandwidth infrastructure and upcoming fiber optic infrastructure.

Project Background

It is recognized that a comprehensive, complex, public and membership oriented, digital spatial platform is required to support the TSI and its subcomponents including:

  • Phase 1 Land Use Plan (LUP) with the Government of British Columbia;
  • Government-to-Government (G2G) land decision-making;
  • Internal Tahltan capacity development;
  • Government-to-Government (G2G) operational LUP relationship;
  • Neighbouring Nation-to-Nation relationships;
  • Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs) candidate areas and program delivery; and
  • Alignment with Tahltan land use initiatives.
