The Bay Area Restoration Council (BARC) is a community not-for-profit group that assesses and promotes clean-up projects in Hamilton Harbour and its watershed. The mandate of BARC is to: promote protection and appreciation of the Hamilton Harbour watershed ecosystem, and promote and develop public information and education programs.  BARC partnered with Civicplan to develop a Harbour Explorer interactive map using the Geostreet platform.  The Explorer combines research into the social, ecological, and industrial history of Hamilton Harbour and assembles the information in an interactive map to help strengthen the understanding of this important community-defining resource.  The map can be used in the classroom or taken on the road to the shoreline through mobile devices, allowing users to discovers the richness of the harbour first-hand.
