The Government of New Brunswick began creating its first geospatial data sets back in the early 1990s. At that time, geographic information was beyond the reach of most people and industry.

This has lead to more and more groups and individuals wishing to access the large amounts of data the department has accumulated over the years. In the interests of enhancing both the life and business opportunities for the people of New Brunswick, the department is proud to supply data for public consumption, either through direct access or by download. Additional datasets are also available from New Brunswick open data website.
