Canadian Maps

A major part of any GIS are Canadian Maps produced that help illustrate and provide visible spatial information, the Canadian GIS & Geomatics site has been providing people with map resources since 2005, and continues to list great resources. To find some awesome Canadian maps, check some of the links below, browse through our data and Canadian map listings, use the search tools found along the right hand side or follow us on Twitter (we post images and links to a wide variety of maps daily).

Is your GIS program listed?

One of the goals of Canadian GIS & Geomatics is to promote education programs in Canada. Currently we have about 25 different Universities & Colleges on our site that offer education related to GIS and Geomatics. However if you are currently in a GIS program or know of one that we have yet to post on the site then we would be interested in hearing more about it from you, so we can share that information with others.

ArcGIS Desktop Application Tutorials

We often get asked for resources to help people learn how to work with GIS. Now that Esri provides a affordable not for commercial version of ArcGIS, we often suggest that they try out these ArcGIS desktop application tutorials provided by the ArcGIS Resource Center

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.
