Manitoba's Integrated Mining and Quarrying System

***UPDATED Information Notice***

The GIS Map Gallery and Integrated Mining and Quarrying System (iMaQs) map viewers utilize Adobe’s Flash software in order to function and display map data. Adobe stopped supporting Flash Player on December 31, 2020 and began to block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021. Most modern browsers stopped supporting Adobe Flash on January 1st 2020 and recommended that all users uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems. The Map Gallery and iMaQs map viewers are currently being upgraded to an HTML5 based system in order to mitigate this issue.

However, due to unforeseen circumstances, the GIS Map Gallery and iMaQs map viewer upgrades have been delayed. This means that users will no longer be able to access the original iMaQs map viewers or Map Gallery until the upgrade has been finalized. As a workaround, temporary map viewers have been created using ArcGIS Online and are accessed using the temporary links below.  Please be aware that these interim viewers have most, but not all of the functionality of the original map viewers.
