The Air Contaminants Emissions (ACE) project undertaken by WLAP with funding from the Georgia Basin Ecosystem Initiative (GBEI) and Environment Canada was initiated to add a spatial component to the 1995 British Columbia emissions inventory and to prototype a GIS enabled emissions inventory system. The project was tasked to provide a simple end-user interface to the emissions inventory that would offer the ability for both spatial and attribute exploration and reporting. For the ACE project, contracts were let to Refractions Research and Glencomm Consulting. The Refractions research work focused on identifying data sets and outlining the modelling framework to be used.2 Allan Glen of Glencomm Consulting developed the spatially enabled emissions inventory system. The Geographic Information Systems Interface provided by the Ministry GIS Oracle Access Tool GOAT) was identified to be the most practical solution for delivering emissions inventory information. Ministry staff can access GOAT, including all regional
