It was created from different databases as part of the GeoBase Surface Water Program, to help with flow analysis, watershed management, environmental and hydrographical applications, as well as a multitude of other cartographic applications.

Free Canadian Geospatial Data Sets

The Federal Government produces and acquires data sets in many different areas including health, agriculture, the environment and natural resources. The Government of Canada launched an open data portal [data.gc.ca] earlier this year as part of Canada's open government initiative. The portal aims to provide Canadians with a single point of access to find and download government open data sets.

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.
