Contours - 50k - Canvec


Data Identification
Abstract: Elevation Features entities are: Contour and Elevation Point. CanVec is a digital cartographic reference product of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). It originates from the best available data sources covering Canadian territory, offers quality topographical information in vector format, and complies with international geomatics standards. CanVec is a multi-source product coming mainly from the National Topographic Data Base (NTDB), the Mapping the North process conducted by the Canada Center for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO), the Atlas of Canada data, the GeoBase initiative, and the data update using satellite imagery coverage (e.g. Landsat 7, Spot, Radarsat, etc.).
Purpose: CanVec aims to update and standardize the representation of topographic features for the entire Canadian territory. The long term objective is to maintain data with the highest possible resolution and then automatically generate other scales. Topographic features coming from the NTDB are not up to date. These features are included in the CanVec product for cartographic reference purpose only. CanVec can be used in Web Mapping Services (WMS), Geographical Information Systems (GIS) applications, and used to produce thematic maps. Because of its many attributes, CanVec allows for extensive spatial analysis. CanVec is maintained in partnership with the data providing organizations.
