Movies and Documentaries Featuring Data Prepared by or Assisted by Tekmap Consulting

CBC Land and SeaSeason 2016, Episode 17. Tidal Power: "The latest efforts to harness tidal power in the Bay of Fundy".

Drain the Great Lakes "North America's Great Lakes are the largest system of freshwater on Earth, but what wonders would be revealed if all the water were suddenly to disappear from Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario?" Aired on the National Geographic Channel and the Discovery Channel.

Oceans in Motion Renowned ocean explorer Teddy Tucker is joined by Canadian Marine geologist Steve Blasco to scour Bermuda's depths for clues about its natural history. They investigate a remarkable discovery - a preserved sunken cedar forest 30 feet beneath the surface of the ocean. Flooded by rising seas thousands of years ago, the remnants of this ancient cedar forest could provide critical clues about sea level rise in the past - and in the future.

Geological Journey A groundbreaking five-part HDTV television documentary series - Geologic Journey - breathes relevance into ancient geology and traces the extraordinary history of our continent to show that the new world is in fact very, very old.

Daily Planet — Goes North Special (2008) A multi-part Daily Planet (Discovery Channel) special on the Canadian North. Features a section on ocean mapping and multibeam technology.
