Thematic Maps: Some of these maps have been created from some of the data contained in CountryWatch Data using GIS mapping software. The data sources and definitions for each thematic map are available from the CountryWatch Data section of the CountryWatch.com website. A small portion of these maps depict global themes in standard (non-GIS) form. The actual themes of the maps range from demographic considerations, such as population density, to economic considerations, such as GDP per capita.

|Global - UTK Map Library Links for various countries|| In 1989, the University Libraries took over administrative control of the collection. This meant a dedicated staff and a collection development budget were provided for the Map Library. The physical transfer of the collection was made easier by the existing organization established and maintained by the Department of Geography. Once the move into a 7,000 square foot facility was complete, the University Libraries had a new branch . . . the UT Map Library.
|Canada - The Columbia Basin Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program|| In 1962 BC Hydro was created by the Province in part to develop hydroelectric and water storage projects under the terms of the international Columbia River Treaty. Some impacts from the construction of dams in the Canadian portion of the Columbia River Basin became evident right away. For example, flooding and the creation of reservoirs had an immediate impact on the availability of suitable habitat for a variety of fish and wildlife species. Other impacts took years to become obvious. For example, decreased productivity in Kootenay Lake and the Arrow Lakes Reservoir occurred when nutrients were trapped upstream by dams. The change in the food web was a key factor in declining kokanee populations.

|Australia - ANZLIC|| ANZLIC is the peak council for public sector spatial data management in Australia and New Zealand.Many activities of government and the community depend on accurate and current information relating to land. It has become increasingly obvious that in order to achieve a widening range of objectives, land and geographic information must be readily available to different spheres of government and the private sector for analysis and integration. In particular, it has been realised that issues such as land resource management, environmental monitoring and economic development require land and geographic information from both the public and private sectors.
