The federal government is planning a new northern innovation centre in Inuvik, specializing in remote sensing.

Remote sensing involves acquiring information about the Earth from a distance, usually via sensors on satellites or aircraft. An example would be satellite images like those on Google Earth.

The centre, which expands on an existing federal satellite facility outside the town, is intended to position Inuvik as a hub for remote sensing and enable northerners to take part in a growing industry.
