  • Point layer showing the locations of facilities. A "facility" is an area that contains one or more components. For example, a visitor centre facility might include two parking lots a playground, a separate building for washrooms, a kiosk for renting canoes, picnic tables and barbeques Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • To show the locations of dams on Parks Canada sites or dams managed by Parks Canada, and other dams of interest to Parks Canada. Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • This point-layer shows the locations of components that make up facilities (Facilities are stored in another layer). Examples of facility components are barbeques, picnic tables, benches, or kiosks. See the Comp domain for a complete list. NOTE: Although some of the items in the domain appear to be activities, they are actually physical entities that appear within a facility. A facility component point would be stored in this layer to show a more precise location of the kayak rental place of business. Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • To show the locations of campsites on Parks Canada sites, campsites administered by Parks Canada, or other campsites of interest to Parks Canada. Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • This point layer shows the locations of places of interest to Parks Canada, visitors, employees, or local residents. These are points that are not already mapped as Parks Canada facilities or components of facilties. Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • This line layer shows the locations of docks and quays on Parks Canada sites, docks or quays owned by Parks Canada, or docks and quays of interest to Parks Canada. Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • Line layer that shows the locations of lockstation gates. (See Gates_Barriers_Portails_Barrieres for other gates and fences). Data is not necessarily complete - updates will occur weekly.

  • Monthly mean currents from Bedford Institute of Oceanography North Atlantic Model (BNAM) results were averaged over 1990 to 2015 period to create monthly mean climatology for the Northwest Atlantic Ocean, which can be considered as a representation of the climatological state of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. The BNAM model is eddy-resolving, NEMO-based ice-ocean coupled North Atlantic Ocean model developed at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (BIO) to support DFO monitoring programs. The data available here is monthly climatology for eight selected depths (surface, 110 m, 156 m, 222 m, 318 m, 541 m, 1062 m, bottom) in 1/12 degree spatial resolution. The data for each month from 1990 until present for the entire model domain ( 8°–75°N latitude and 100°W–30°E longitude) and various depths is available upon request. The 1990-2017 model hindcast result is compared with observational data from surface drifter and satellite altimetry. The model demonstrates good skill in simulating surface currents, winter convection events in the Labrador Sea, and the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation as observed at 26.5°N and 41°N. Model results have been used to interpret changes in the Labrador Current and observed warming events on the Scotian Shelf, and are reported through the annual AZMP Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat Process.

  • The “Agri-Environmental Indicator (AEI) - Agricultural Particulate Matter Emissions (APMEI) - Total Suspended Particles (TSP) - 2011” dataset provides estimated net emissions of particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 100 micrometers (including less than 2.5 micrometers (PM 2.5) and less than 10 micrometers (PM 10)) from agricultural lands for census years 1981 to 2011.
