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.

Description:
This report assesses the degree to which both existing and proposed terrestrial protected area networks protect/would protect landscape-level biodiversity, which we represent as vegetation types delineated from remotely-sensed imagery. A comprehensive, standardized, and thematically appropriate map of [Central-American] vegetation and landcover types was developed by classifying AVHRR imagery (advanced very high resolution radiometer imagery -- 1 km2 resolution) using advanced digital image processing routines and expertise provided by a Central America Vegetation Working Group. The map identifies 17 remaining natural vegetation types. The classification accuracy of the map is estimated to exceed 80%.

Digital Chart of the World ()

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).

Description:
This product is a globally seamless adaptation of the U.S. Government's Digital Chart of the World (Vector Smart Map Level 0 [VMap0], Edition 5) produced by Global Mapping International in ESRI shapefile format, with added country polygons and updated first-level subdivisions of countries. The underlying Digital Chart of the World was developed by the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (now the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency)of the U.S. government. GMI has merged the DCW into seamless, global shapefile layers (the original consists of four separate libraries, each divided into dozens of tiles). GMI has also provided sample map project and layer files applying appropriate cartographic symbology to the complex classification system of VMap0). The VMap0 data was compiled from the Operational Navigational Chart (ONC) series of air navigation maps with a scale of 1:1,000,000. Full information about VMAP Level 0, edition 5 is contained in MIL-PRF-89039 "PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION - VECTOR SMART MAP (VMap) Level 0" as amended (VMAP0_spec.pdf) GMI has also provided sample map project and layer files applying appropriate cartographic symbology to the complex classification system of VMap 0 when using the shapefiles in ArcGIS version 8.3 and above.

"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."
