The Geospace Observatory (GO) Canada Initiative
The GO Canada initiative is a project that brings together a variety of space weather research tools and infrastructure. This network of ground-based instruments (more than 120 as of June 2019) that monitor space weather over Canada's North collects geospatial data, conducts scientific research and turns scientific knowledge into applications that benefit Canadians. This set of instruments, tools and measuring stations is essential for monitoring the Earth's magnetic field and protecting the population from solar flares.
The proposed resources produce an interactive map (Google Earth) showing where GO Canada tools, instruments and research stations are located across the country. This data also identifies the devices and provides a link to the data generated by each station.
