Sustainability and autonomy for the Northern people

Technical infrastructures for the circumpolar region

Nunavut. In a region where ‘personal space’ is a radius of hundreds of kms around the body, notions of networks, data and collaborative practice take on new meaning. The Arctic Perspective Initiative (API) is a non-profit, international group working to promote the creation of open authoring, communications and dissemination infrastructures for the circumpolar region. Projects such as the SiNuNi sensor network, creating new forms of user defined, instant dynamic mapping for environmental, navigational and wildlife assessment, are changing the way in which Northern peoples define sustainability and autonomy. http://arcticperspective.org/
