The Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) was generated for certain Environment Canada long-term climate stations in Ontario. The SPI quantifies the precipitation deficit and surplus for multiple time scales , including: * one month * three months * six months * nine months * 12 months * 24 months You can use the SPI to study the impact of dry and wet weather conditions to create comprehensive water management approaches. The SPI data package is distributed as a Microsoft Access Geodatabase. __This is a legacy dataset that we no longer maintain or support.__ The documents referenced in this record may contain URLs (links) that were valid when published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.
The Ontario Classified Point Cloud (Imagery-Derived) is a classified elevation point cloud based on aerial photography. The point cloud is structured in non-overlapping 1 km by 1 km tiles in a compressed format. The following classification codes are applied to the data: * unclassified * ground * low noise This data is for geospatial tech specialists, and is used by government, municipalities, conservation authorities and the private sector for land use planning and environmental analysis.
The flood magnitude statistics can be used for applications such as flood plain delineation and design of hydraulic structures. The drought severity statistics can be used for applications such as water abstraction and effluent dilution.
Natural cover includes areas that have been mapped as woodlands (including plantations and hedgerows), wetlands and other rare vegetative cover communities. Data here represent areas outlined in the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan Policy 6.48 (June 2011).

From 2003 to January 12, 2014, Ministry of Children and Youth Services used the following 9 regions: * Eastern * South East * Central East * Central West * South West * Hamilton/Niagara * Toronto * North East * Northern These 9 Service Delivery Division regions were combined with Youth Justice Services regions to create 5 new integrated regions: * North * West * Central * East * Toronto These new regions are effective as of January 13, 2014.
This area has been identified as important for species movement. Analysis was completed on the natural heritage features of the fragmented areas of this region. This region has considerable development pressures in Ontario and New York State. Official LIO title: Algonquin to Adirondack (A2A) Landscape Analysis *[A2A]: Algonquin to Adirondack
From April 1, 2004 to Jan 12, 2014, Ministry of Children and Youth Services used the following regions: * Eastern * Central * Western * Northern These 4 Youth Justice Services Division regions were combined with 9 Service Delivery Division regions to create 5 new integrated regions across the province: * North * West * Central * East * Toronto These new regions are effective as of January 13, 2014.
The Ontario in-filled climate data collection includes information from 339 monitoring stations maintained by the Meteorological Service of Canada. Historical climate data commonly has missing hourly and daily records due to equipment malfunctions, temporary site maintenance or other reasons. “In-filling” is a technical process that draws on data from nearby stations to fill in these missing records. This collection contains fully in-filled precipitation and temperature records for Ontario from 1950 to 2005. It is organized into eight separate databases in Microsoft Access format. One of the databases contains daily in-filled climate records. The remaining seven databases contain hourly in-filled climate records divided into regions for manageability.
Ontario's recreational fishing regulations are based on 20 Fisheries Management Zones. This map outlines the "border waters area" in Zone 5. The layer and the resulting map were created by the Office of the Surveyor General of Ontario.
