Abstract(Summary)
This case study describes activities undertaken by Parks Canada over 30 years to respond to their need for geospatial data. The case study provides important lessons learned by illustrating how Parks Canada has adopted, used and shared geospatial information during these three decades. The case study also showcases three essential benefits of the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI):
1.Combining current, standards-based data from the CGDI and other sources makesfor better decision-making.
2.Layering different data sets expands insights.
3.Sharing data reduces costs and improves decision making.

Parks Canada needs to monitor and report on the parks under its jurisdiction as well as provide materials and tools for managing, planning, and outreach. In this way, this case study is relevant to any large organization with complex, over-lapping requirements for geospatial information. This case study also refers to research into meeting specific information needs.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
In 2012, GeoConnections commissioned a series of case studies to showcase the benefits and value of geo-information and the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI). This report highlights five different case studies which describe how different initiatives benefited from using geo-information and promoting interoperability.
