These training modules are designed to enable users across Canada to develop their own local scenarios, identify relevant spatial data, assess visualization needs, and determine visualization media and production methods for local implementation. These training modules incorporate Delta RAC, and other prior CALP visualization materials. Please refer to CALP’s Guidance Manual and the Delta RAC Sea Level Rise Adaptation website for more information.
We hope that the modules will enable more rapid uptake of processes and tools that enhance public engagement, policy development, and decision support around climate change issues.
Training Module 1 Spatial & Local Scenario Building aims to help users develop local scenarios to help take climate change into account for community planning. Scenarios_Module_Final_web
Training Module 2 Data Integration aims to help users identify, access and develop data, including spatial data, for the purposes of scenario building and visualization, and how to integrate these into a local climate change planning process. Data_Module_Final
Training Module 3 Visualization Design & Production aims to help users assess their visualization needs and determine the appropriate visualization media and production methods for local implementation. Visualization_Module_Final_web
These training modules were made possible by support and funding from Natural Resources Canada (Regional Adaptation Collaborative) and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (2012)

Climate change is here, bringing unprecedented challenges, but also new opportunities. One group that CALP works with is SFU’s Adaptation to Climate Change Team (ACT). This group equips decision-makers with resources that will assist industry, governments, and communities to adapt to the impacts. Visit their website for more information.
