AWM is a component in the Arctic Connect project. It is designed to provide a better mapping tool for researchers by displaying a more appropriate projection for Arctic research.
AWM is built on an open source mapping stack, using similar technologies to OpenStreetMap. Background map data is used under license from OpenStreetMap contributors. Tiles are based on the data in the OSM extract when the tile servers were provisioned. For v1.0 of the tiles, the tiles are based on 2017 OSM data. For v2.0 of the tiles, this is based on April 2019 OSM data.
