Canadian Open Data and Free Geospatial Data

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.

About CanadianGIS.com

The CanadianGIS.com website is a free online Canadian Geospatial resource website that I started in 2005 after discovering that there was a lack of good online places to find Canadian GIS & Geomatics resources for the projects that I was involved with.

Over time it evolved from a small html based site created mainly for my own use to an interactive one where thousands of people now visit every week. More functionality has been added such as social media, geomatics events calendar, blog and the Canadian Geospatial directory but the focus has remained the same and thanks to a dedicated following the site remains to be one of the best places to help people find online Canadian Geospatial resources.
