Digital Elevation Model of the Greater Toronto Area, Southern Ontario Bathymetry (1999)

Date: 1999
Creator: Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (Paquette, Russell, Moore, and Hinton)
Datum: NAD
Projection: UTM Zone 17
Scale: 1:50000 or 30 metre
Access: CD-ROM #015
Description:
"A hydrologically conditioned Digital elevation Model has been developed for the Greater Toronto Area of southern Ontario and for Lake Ontario. The model has been developed from 1:50 000 NTDB data onshore and Canadian Hydrographic Service bathymetric point data for Lake Ontario. Terrain specific interpolation and drainage enforcement techniques within the ARC/INFO TOPOGRID software module were used to interpolate the data to a gred cell of 30m. Verification of the model demonstrates that elevations are correct to plus or minus 3m. This digital elevation model is suitable for the automatic delineation of watersheds. This report documents the development of the model included on this compact disc. The model was developed as part of the Geological Survey of Canada Oak Ridges Moraine National Mapping and Hydrogeology programs in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and the Canadian Hydrographic Service.

Abstract from Metadata web page:
"Wooded Area polygons represent the boundaries of woodlands (forests, woodlots, hedgerows, and plantations) in Southern Ontario. The woodland dataset is one of numerous products derived through the implementation of the SOLRIS project. The methodology used in SOLRIS Phase 1 involves updating the NRVIS wooded area (WOODAREA concrete class) data through the interpretation of remotely sensed data including orthophotography, Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) and colour infrared aerial photography. This dataset represents wooded areas within the MNR Southern Region classified into 'Treed', 'Hedgerow' and 'Plantation' classes."
