Recognizing Women with Canadian Place Names

Recognizing Women with Canadian Place Names This interactive map is a collaborative project by Natural Resources Canada and the federal, provincial and territorial members of the Geographical Names Board of Canada. The map illustrates a sample of close to 500 places in Canada named for women from a range of backgrounds who have been remembered for many different reasons. Each point on the map is categorized by a theme, and contains a short description of the person behind that place name. The descriptions reveal that information about these women and the places named for them varies widely; some are well-known and well-documented figures, while little is known about others. 2021-03-12 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.geonames-toponymes.rncan@canada.ca Society and CultureCanadaGendered toponymyWomen's place namesGNBCToponymyGeographical maps Recognizing Women with Canadian Place NamesESRI REST https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/rest/services/NRCan/womens_placenames_en/MapServer/0 Recognizing Women with Canadian Place NamesESRI REST https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/rest/services/NRCan/womens_placenames_fr/MapServer/0 Recognizing Women with Canadian Place NamesWMS https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/services/NRCan/womens_placenames_en/MapServer/WMSServer?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.3.0&REQUEST=GetCapabilities Recognizing Women with Canadian Place NamesWMS https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/services/NRCan/womens_placenames_fr/MapServer/WMSServer?SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.3.0&REQUEST=GetCapabilities Text dataset of the Women's Placenames map (comma-separated values)CSV https://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/Toponymy_Toponymie/womens_placenames_toponymes_feminins/womens_placenames_toponymes_feminins.csv Story Map: Recognizing Women with Canadian Place NamesHTML https://canada.ca/womens-map/ Story Map: Recognizing Women with Canadian Place NamesHTML https://canada.ca/carte-des-femmes/
