Canadian National Topographic Database - NTDB (NTS) (various)

Date: various
Creator: Natural Resources Canada
Datum:
Projection:
Scale: 1:50000 and 1:250000
Access:
Description:
The 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.

Digital Chart of the World ()

Date:
Creator: ESRI
Datum:
Projection:
Scale: 1:1000000
Access: Web
Description:
The Digital Chart of the World (DCW) is an Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) product originally developed for the US Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) using DMA data. We used the DCW 1993 version at 1:1,000,000 scale. The DMA data sources are aeronautical charts, which emphasize landmarks important from flying altitudes. This explains why there is a separate aeronautical theme with all conceivable airports, yet why on some themes small islands and lakes are simply unnamed points. ESRI, in compiling the DCW, also eliminated some detail and made some assumptions for handling tiny polygons and edgematching. Also, note that the completeness of the thematic categories present in each layer will vary. Please read the layer descriptions (through links in the following table).
