Why do the HACOLP pages or data windows which pop up, sometimes disappear?
The HACOLP uses pop-up windows to display data related to the interactive mapping page. These initially appear on top, but if you click on the mapping window the pop-up windows move "behind" the mapping page. They are still open, and you can bring them back to the front by returning focus to them by clicking on the page again - where you can do this depends on your computer and operating system. One option on some browsers is to open pop-ups in new "Tabs", so that they are always easily available.
Can I download data from the Historical Atlas of Canada Online Learning Project?
One of the reasons for the project is to make its data more available for teaching and research. Currently the data behind individual map features is available through data selection and querying tools. Data is also available for download online in spreadsheet file format. The GIS data layers are not mounted on the website, however these may be distributed on request for teaching and research. Please use the Feedback Form to contact the HACOLP.
Why are there chapters and maps listed in the Browse the maps and Full Contents List which are not active?
Much of the original Historical Atlas of Canada was produced in printed maps only, not using computerized mapping. The plan is to make the full proposed list of chapters active over the coming years. This will depend on further funding being found for the project. Please use the Feedback Form if you wish to suggest the addition of specific maps, or other priorities.
What is the connection between the Online Learning Project and the printed Historical Atlas of Canada?
The printed Historical Atlas of Canada was a three-volume collaborative project created by editors and scholars from across Canada, and produced at the University of Toronto. The Online Learning Project is an effort to make that research and data available to a wider audience. It is also being used for ongoing teaching and research at the U of T.
