NYS Canal System Interactive Area Map.

WCNY’s NYS Canal System Google Map connects educators, our local community, and the world at large to the “New York State’s Contemporary Canal System” educational resources. These resources include video, an educator’s guide, and the Canal map. The video highlights important locations along the Erie, Oswego, Champlain, and Cayuga-Seneca canals and is indexed into short clips for each location. The educator’s guide provides an instructional unit on the canal system, both past and present. Interactive map connects visitors to each location by providing to and from driving directions, a quick link to video associated with that location, and the physical address.
