This map is out of this world!

The Canada from Space Giant Floor Map is composed of images taken by Canada’s RADARSAT-2 and is the first of its kind. Explore how Earth observation satellites monitor Canada and can be used to protect and prepare Canadians. Through ten curriculum-linked activities, students will learn how pollution and natural disasters impact our country, the importance of Canada’s arctic ice, the scientific phenomenon of the northern lights, and more. They will also get a chance to see Canada from the perspective of the International Space Station, through the eyes of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.

Access the Canada from Space learning resources in Inuktitut.
