You can turn on different Layers of data on the homepage map. These Layers give us more insight so we can relate to and govern the Great Lakes as a shared commons.

Our newest Layer is Nuclear Hotpots around the lakes. We got our data from the Sierra Club Michagan Chapter where you can see more links and details on the hotpots. 

With more coming soon, we also have Layers marking First Nations of Ontario, the Tar Sands Line 9 pipeline, permits to take bottled water in Ontario, places that have banned bottle water, and supporters of the Great Lakes Commons Charter. We would like to expand the range of these layers - both the locations and type. So please get in touch if you have ideas, data, or mapping skills. 

More maps and examples offering important perspectives into the Great Lakes are found in our Gallery
