IHT Place Names

This site links traditional place names knowledge to maps in IHT’s Nunavut Map Series, on Google Earth, and through the Atanaattiaq Map Viewer. A key end goal is to help ensure that traditional names are made official through a process involving the Government of Nunavut’s Geographic Names Policy.
