| The Gulf Islands Atlas is a web-based mapping tool that brings together a variety of information about the natural and cultural attributes and resources of the southern Gulf Islands region.
Its main purpose is to foster public awareness of the resources within Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, and to help park managers make informed decisions that promote the maintenance of ecological integrity on park lands while at the same time allowing for public enjoyment and education opportunities.
The contents of the atlas can assist researchers in creating a profile of the myriad of ecosystems within the park (from the macro to the regional), be used in the development of communications and interpretive products, provide the building blocks for management planning, and paint a portrait of the human presence on the islands over the millennia.
