Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Due to the increased spatial dimension of open government data, open geospatial data provides a unique location to explore the opportunities and challenges of opening Indigenous data. The objective of this report is to understand the benefits, limitations, and contradictions of First Nations geospatial data within an open data regime. Specifically, the research aims to examine how, or if, the Government of Canada can observe OCAP® (Ownership, Access, Control, and Possession) principles while disseminating First Nations geospatial data under Open Government Licence-Canada.
