Ontario Outdoorsman

An online forum on multiple platforms allowing individuals, groups or communities to design, load and update specific data layers to an interactive mapping system. Uploads include anything from a kayaking trip rapids navigation route to a 2 day hiking food plan.

This is a work in progress that will require more development and more buy-in from participants. When completed it will consist of a fully-functioning home page (beta version here) linked to social networking platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

Given the right development and participation the proposed website could have a sizeable impact on our outdoors community by encouraging active engagement in local parks, provincial parks, and waterways.

I'm a historian, curator, teacher and designer living in Ottawa. In 2003 I completed a Harvard doctoral dissertation on the 18thC origins of the catalogue raisonné. Then I taught at Stanford University in California from 2003 to 2005. For the next six years I was Curator of European & American Art at the National Gallery of Canada. These days I'm involved in a variety of research, teaching, advocacy and design projects. For more information visit my web sites, including my personal blog (grahamlarkin.info) that will take you to my other sites including Design Incubator (designincubator.info), Slow Ottawa (slowottawa.ca), Vision Zero Canada (visionzero.ca) and Love 30 Canada (love30.ca).
