|Abstract||This report highlights the Arviat water supply assessment activity conducted by scientists from the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing at Natural Resources Canada and staff from the Nunavut research
Institute (NRI). This activity included the use of high resolution satellite imagery and on-site field surveys to map the lake depths of a lake close to Arviat and the acquisition of other geomatics datasets.|
