The Nunavut Atlas resulted from a project that assisted the Inuit in selecting the lands they would retain with the settlement of the Nunavut claim. Each section contains an indexed map of the settlement area, maps illustrating and text describing land use and critical wildlife areas. The Atlas is an invaluable resource for land use planning, and for anyone wishing to better understand the age-old relationship between Inuit and the natural environment.
