Keep up to date with Paralympic Watch!

Want to keep up to date with the Paralympics in Vancouver? The Library has created an innovative mash-up, Paralympic Watch, that integrates updates of medal standings with Google maps, statistical data and historical images of the Paralympics from Library collections. In addition to medal standings, users will also be able to view the geographic location of the country, as well as statistical data and selected images. Please note that Mozilla Firefox is required to view Paralympic Watch.

Paralympic Watch has been designed for viewing on a wide screen, and is viewable on the Library 4th floor.

To learn more about Paralympic Watch, please contact Graham McCarthy, Innovative Technologies Librarian or Dan Jakubek, Map and GIS Librarian.

  1. Thanks for your interest. You can also view Paralympic Watch from your desktop, by clicking on the link in the blog post. You will need to use Mozilla Firefox. Although the application was designed for a larger screen, you will still be able to view it from your own computer.
