  • In September, GREENLAND®  completed (and within a year) the next evolution of “The Healthy River Ecosystem AssessmenT System” (aka THREATS™).
 
The development of this Internet open data and open source GIS platform was inspired from earlier research funded by the Canadian Water Network and prototype development team led by Dr. Monique Dubé. Thereafter, GREENLAND® secured source code rights and began developing the new platform last year. The platform includes a cumulative effects assessment focus and can be used to also develop related policies and management frameworks. THREATS™ can also serve as a cost-effective tool for watershed and land use planning and assist researchers at colleges and universities. THREATS™ can be customized to include other real-time databases and specific client needs of Indigenous communities, government agencies and resource industries. Further development phases will be initiated soon for export (global market) opportunities and linking western-science with Indigenous knowledge to assess cumulative effects. A platform overview is available, as well as an introductory video. The video introduces just a few (of MANY possible!) applications that can access real-time and open data, as well as an extensive Canada-wide library of climate and watershed databases with science-based modeling functions.
 
GREENLAND® also sincerely thanks the Government of Canada and the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC - IRAP) for support in developing this version of THREATS™.
 
For more information about THREATS™ or to schedule a live (web) demonstration, please contact Greenland.THREATS@grnland.com

Client Testimonials

University of Guelph

The reappearance of excessive nutrient loading in Lake Erie and the subsequent algae blooms is an extremely complex issue and is quite different in nature than the previous phosphorous loadings in the 1970s. Unlike the issue in the 1970s, there are far more sources adding nutrients to the late and these sources are diverse in nature ranging from rural to urban. In order to understand the nutrient loading, both in the temporal and spatial domains, more complex analytic and predictive tools are required in order to help policy make sound, science based, and defendable solutions.

The University of Guelph is uniquely positioned to help address the issues around Lake Erie with long standing core strengths in both the agricultural sector and the environmental field. In conjunction with our partner, Greenland Consulting Engineers, and their watershed evaluation tool (CANWETTM), we believe that we have the engineering and technology to extrapolate CANWETTM from the watershed level up to the lake basin level and provide decision-making support for the entire Lake Erie basin.

City of Toronto

Mayor David Miller and Members of Toronto City Council extend appreciation to Greenland Group of Companies for your outstanding contribution to the City of Toronto’s Green Roof Technical Advisory Group. As a participant of the City of Toronto’s Green Roof Technical Advisory Board, you have contributed tremendously to its leadership role on climate change and helped support the development of the Toronto Green Roof By-law.

This initiative, the first of its kind in North America, sets the standard in designing sites and buildings across the city that are more environmentally friendly, a key strategy in reducing the effects of climate change.
 
We thank you for helping our city achieve its vision and goals on climate change – it is this kind of collaboration that makes us proud, prosperous and successful.

Best wishes for continued success.

Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change

We are pleased to write in full support of the Canada-Europe Partnership, particularly the collaboration of the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) and the
Partners for Action (P4A) network to support incorporation of climate change considerations in the project and assist in testing FLOODVIEW with Canadian municipalities and insurers.
 
P4A and IC3 are dedicated to consideration of climate change in Canada’s approach to flood risk management, and dissemination of knowledge and best practices to the insurance industry, government decision-makers, and the Canadian public. We look forward to partnering with you to identify effective solutions to minimize urban flooding.
