DescriptionThe National Topographic System (NTS) is a system of divisions used primarily for topographic maps of the Canadian landmass. Maps at the 1:250 000 scale are identified by a combination of numbers and letters from A to P (e.g. 13C). A map at the 1:50 000 scale corresponds to 1/16 of a map at the 1:250 000 scale, with each unit number from 01 to 16. Adding the unit number to the 1:250 000 number produces a unique identifier (e.g. 13C09). The University of Toronto Map and GIS Collection now has access to all NTDB datasets for Canada, including all sheets at 1:50000, 1:25000 for the topographic sets, the Digital Elevation Models and at 1:50000 for CanImage.
