Online Canadian Web Mapping Applications
As many of you know, one of the main focuses on our website is highlighting and promoting the use of geospatial data, as a way to promote the importance of learning geography and understanding geographic information.
Therefore we created this section to showcase some of the many Canadian Web Maps that are freely available on the Internet, that we think are useful.
If you know of some great other web maps that you think should be included on the site for the Canadian geospatial community to discover, then let us know.
Below is one of the hundreds of online web mapping applications developed to help Canadians …
Interactive Pipeline Map
Canada has a vast network of pipelines that transport millions of litres of oil and gas every day.
The interactive online Pipeline Map by the National Energy Board shows the approximate spatial location of federally regulated pipelines in Canada, as well as indicates any incidents (from 2008 to present) that were reported under the Onshore Pipeline Regulations and the Processing Plant Regulations related to pipelines under federal jurisdiction.
With this interactive mapping application, Canadians can easily identify where pipelines are located and find important related safety information. Users can also discover information about a pipeline, who operates it, and what products it transports.
The Interactive Pipeline Map user guide explains all the various functionality available.
