Rogers Outage Map
Many people experienced the service outage from Rogers a few days ago. An Outage Map about ‘Is Service Down?’ by Rogers emphasizes areas in the country where the residents are still experiencing blackouts. The Internet made up 51% of the total service outages along with phone, TV, Wi-Fi, and email. The areas of Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Vancouver were the mostly affected regions in the country.

Fraser Valley Regional District Emergency Status Map
FVRD Emergency Status Map is available this month. Those who live or work in close proximity to the Fraser River can keep a close watch on the water levels. The map comes with new historical data on floods and it will be regularly updated to show current evacuation alerts, orders, and will offer other useful information. Read more here
With the Canadian Government as a funding partner, Ecopia AI will create a 3D Map of Canada
This project will take the top 100 cities in Canada and create a complete digital representation. This can help municipalities manage cities with a better understanding of economic growth, community development, and climate resilience. This project will also assist with the Canadian government’s emissions target of Net-Zero by 2050.
Ecopia will use Artificial intelligence and high-resolution aerial imagery that will be used to produce a high-precision 3D vector map of the top 100 cities in Canada. The map will display a digital representation of many features such as buildings, bridges, roads, railways, sidewalks, swimming pools, etc. Read more here
Canada’s Vegetative Growth Map
Statistics Canada Crop Condition Assessment Program developed a map based on satellite data comparing the vegetative growth in the western and eastern Prairies. Teal green shows higher than normal crop development in the western region, whereas brown indicates the lower and much lower crop development on the eastern side. The lower crop development on the eastern side is due to the delayed plantation. Too much moisture and flooding around Manitoba’s Red River Valley and north of Brandon played a big role in delayed seeding. Read more here
