The 2012 Canadian UFO Survey

Compiled by

Since 1989, UFOlogy Research of Manitoba has solicited sightings
data from active Canadian researchers. This data is annually
compiled into the Canadian UFO Survey. The survey is made
publicly available in an attempt to promote the dissemination of
information across the field of ufology. This page contains many
of the surveys, as well as the data.

The "Survey Essay" page contains just that; the essays produced
each year summarizing the findings of the survey for that year,
along with explanations of trends, as well as describing some of
the more interesting cases for each year.

The "Search The Database" link is currently inactive. In the
future, the complete database will be put on the web, allowing
any users to search the database for sightings based on the
criteria of their choosing.

The "Data Tables" page contains the raw data, in html table
format, for most of the Survey years. Basic data, such as date,
time, number of witnesses, etc. is listed, as well as a very
limited general description of each sighting. Right now we have
the basic data for most years up on the web page, but are
currently missing 1989, 1992, and 2009 on the website. We hope
to get that data online sometime in the near future.

The "Charts" page contains assorted charts summarizing the data
over the years. One can find such things as the distribution of
sightings by province, time of day, etc. The charts are in .gif
format.With respect to the charts, there is a trade-off that
must be made. If one is to be able to view the results of the
different variables being measured, the chart is frequently too
large to fit on the monitor, and one has to scroll left or right
to view the entire results. Shrinking the charts to fit the
screen, while making the entire chart as a whole visable, makes
it difficult to actually interpret the chart, as the labels
become too small. I have chosen to forsake convenience and make
the charts large enough that one can actually read the results.
Given this, the various charts are best viewed with the latest
version of Internet Explorer, as it gives you the ability to
easily resize the images. Printing the charts using I.E. seems
to work well too. With Netscape however, some of the charts
don't print on a single page, and either come out on two pages,
or it simply cuts off a portion of the chart.

The "Testimonies" page is currently inactive, but will contain
eyewitness accounts, in the own words of the witnesses.
