The fixed-gap imaging Fabry-Perot Spectrometer (FPS) or Interferometer (FPI) at Inuvik in the North West Territories (NWT) of Canada (68.33N, 133.50W) is located on a hill above the Mackenzie River close to the Arctic Ocean. It is 103.2 m above mean sea level and has been operating since late 1998, with reliable data after about February 2000.
