1895 Ottawa Panoramic Map
Today we are sharing a panoramic view of the City of Ottawa (see further below) that was published in 1895 by the Toronto Lithographing Company. It provides viewers an oblique aerial view in a south direction from the east looking west up the Ottawa river.
It contains detailed sketches of several principal business buildings at that time, that are displayed around the edges of the map. You also get a look at the transit rail system and a view of Parliament Hill before the big fire in 1916.
Digital reproductions of this map have been made available on the Library of Congress, Geography and Map Division web site

Over the past few years CanadianGIS.com has been highlighting and promoting various cities and provinces in Canada that have done a great job providing data and applications to the public.
We created this page a few years ago to collaborate links of all the open geospatial data info (sites that offer data downloads at no cost and without restrictions), fee based geospatial data, online web mapping applications and other great sources of geospatial information (including National, Provincial and Regional levels).
This comprehensive list of open geospatial data, fee based geospatial data, web mapping applications and cartographic products is a valuable asset to many people (… we get hundreds of emails and requests regarding “Where can I find data for …?”) so we continue to update it with new information and sources of Canadian data sets.
