I found this online today, thought I'd share...

Canoe atlas of the Little North. (East Manitoba, North Ontario)

Done by some folks at UC Berkeley (of all places, the Americans are the ones reminding us of our canoe heritage - someone should beat MNR / NRCan with a big stick)

Looks like a work in progress, but good info and writing nonetheless. Web page seems to only work correctly in Internet Explorer (not firefox friendly)

Cheers,
-ben

Wow!

Looks like a very cool project. I will have to keep an eye on it!

The "Canoe Atlas of the Little North" is a long-running project - hopefully to be published someday - of Jon Berger of Philadelphia and Tom Terry of Sioux Lookout. There is some background on the project and these gentlemen in the "Sutton River" section of the Ottertooth.com website.

Tom and Jon were both presenters at the 2000 Wilderness Canoe Symposium in Toronto.

Whenever I enter a map number, even the example of 42M, I get a 404 error. What is everyone else getting that is causing the raves?

The site was up a few days ago. I am getting the same error now.

I saw several maps with portages, rapids, etc. marked on them.

Jon Berger is a friend of a friend of mine and has attended most of the Symposia in recent years.
I had conversations with Jon Berger about his atlas progress at the last two Symposia - 2004 and 2005 (he's been working on it for many years) and he told me that the progress was slow due to him having other obligations and not the time he would need to really complete it (it was supposed to be in a book form when he began it).
It appears that it is getting there (albeit in a web format).
