Biography

Dr. D. R. Fraser Taylor is Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Professor of International Affairs, Geography and Environmental Studies, and Director of the Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. He is recipient of the Killam Prize for the Social Sciences, Canada’s highest academic honour (2014), which was accompanied by an award in the amount of $100,000; the Carl Mannerfelt Gold Award, the International Cartographic Association’s most prestigious acknowledgement and first presentation to a Canadian (2013); and the 3M/Royal Canadian Geographic Society Award for Environmental Innovation (2012). In 2008 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Dr. Taylor is active in geospatial information management research and is a member of the United Nations Expert Group on Global Geospatial Information Management. He was President of the International Cartographic Association for two four year terms, President of the International Union for Surveys and Mapping, and Chair the International Steering Committee for Global Mapping for a decade. He was Secretary Treasurer of the Canadian Association of African Studies for fifteen years and received an Honorary Life Membership in the Association for his services to African scholarship.

He is recognized as one of the world’s leading cartographers, is a pioneer in the use of the computer in cartography and the creation of digital atlases, and he introduced the concept of cybercartography; he has a strong background in international development, supporting the use of geographical information processing, cartography and cybercartography with local communities, governments and academic institutions across Canada, and in Africa, India, Denmark, Norway, China, Mexico and Brazil, and he has published widely in this field; Dr. Taylor also works extensively with northern communities (Inuit and First Nations) in the creation of cybercartographic atlases dealing with traditional and local knowledge. His latest book is entitled “Developments in the Theory and Practice of Cybercartography: Applications and Indigenous Mapping (published by Elsevier in 2014). A new volume, “Further Development in the Theory and Practice of Cybercartography: International Dimensions and Language Mapping” is In Press.

Research Interests

Professor Taylor’s main research interests are in the application of geospatial information management to the analysis of key socio-economic problems in a national and international context and the presentation of the results in innovative new cartographic forms. He introduced and continues to develop the new paradigm of cybercartography. His interests in cartography and international development issues are often inter-related. He has extensive field experience in developing nations, especially in Africa, which included a six year period as an education officer in rural Kenya where he completed his Ph.D. thesis on Rural Development in Muranga District. His research interests in this area include: development studies with special reference to Africa, China and Latin America; regional and rural development theory and practice sustainable development and indigenous development strategies; technology transfer in the field of geomatics; Canada’s international policies in ODA; and technology transfer.

Current research is focussed on the use of cybercartography and the innovative NUNALIIT cybercartographic data management platform to produce a series of atlases on a wide variety of topics especially in cooperation with Indigenous communities. This includes a range of issues dealing with Traditional Knowledge including legal and ethical considerations. Dr. Taylor has received over $14 million in research funding from a variety of sources including SSHRC, CFI, CEC-NAPECA, INAC, the Ontario Research Fund, The Ontario Brain Institute, the Government of Nunavut, and a number of Northern Communities and Organizations including Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, Kitikmeot Heritage Society, Clyde River, Sahtu and Gwich’in. This support is ongoing and current funded projects include:

  • A SSHRC partnership development grant to transfer cybercartographic theory and practice to communities and organizations in Mexico, Brazil and Denmark. Support for this project has also been provided by CEC-NAPECA.
  • Participation in a CFI funded project as part of the Canadian Consortium for Arctic Data Interoperability on data sharing and analysis for Arctic Research and Northern Communities
  • The Nunaliit Coastal Research Inventory Atlas (Government of Nunavut)
  • The continuing development of the Thule Atlas with the Kitikmeot Heritage Society (KHS)
  • The continuing development of a mapping and visualization platform for the research networks of the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI)
  • The Residential Schools Land Memory Mapping Project (SSHRC Insight Grant)
  • Participation in the Ocean Canada Partnership, Arctic Working Group (UBC, SSHRC)
  • Mapping Linguistic Variation on the Canadian Prairies (University of Manitoba, SSHRC)
  • The Indigenous Community Based Climate Monitoring Program (INAC)
  • Enabling NUNALIIT to support the Atlascine Platform (Concordia University and CANARIE)
