Community-based Monitoring Network (CBMN)

Project Details

The Community-based Monitoring Network (CBMN) study was the catalyst that led to the founding of Trailmark Systems. To date, the project team has trained over 40 harvesters and 6 data clerks in three Nunavut communities (Sanikiluaq, Arviat and Cambridge Bay) who are taking ownership of the CBMN at the local level. Harvesters are using hand-held electronic units to record travel routes, wildlife harvests and observations; weather conditions are also documented while out on the land. Data clerks are trained to download the data, verify the information through digital photographs collected by the harvesters, and maintain the local database. Data is available through an online portal (with restricted access).
