    This service provides routeing measures. These include established (mandatory) direction of traffic flow, recommended direction of traffic flow, separation lines, separation zones, limits of restricted routeing measure, limits of routeing measures, precautionary areas, archipelagic sea lanes (axis line and limit beyond which vessels shall not navigate) and fairways designated by regulatory authority.

  • Geographic bathymetric grid data at 100 m x 100 m pixel resolution. Datum: WGS84 Collaboration of Canada, the United States of America and the European Union as part of the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance's fifth project under the Galway Statement. Project mapped the North Atlantic seafloor along a transect from Halifax, Canada to Tromsø, Norway to further the understanding of marine habitats, conservation and navigation. Chief Scientist / Primary Investigator name: Paola Travaglini Platform: CCGS Louis S. St- Laurent (Canadian heavy icebreaker) Device 1 type: Multibeam echo-sounder (sonar) Device 1 manufacturer: Kongsberg Device 1 model: EM122 behind an ice protection window https://www.km.kongsberg.com/ks/web/nokbg0397.nsf/AllWeb/E016DF00EBFC2964C12571B1003F9DDA/$file/306105_em122_product_specification.pdf Data and Data format: 100 m resolution grid of bathymetry BAG format: Bathymetric Attributed Grid Object https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/bathymetry/noshdb/ons_fsd.pdf Navigation and positioning: Trimble GNSS receiver + antennae Applanix POS/MV v5 inertial measuring system Horizontal Datum: WGS84 (G1762) Tidal correction: Zero tide applied: tides are not well known for the major part of the data and tides over very deep water are generally negligible. Sound Velocity Profile measurements: In-situ sound velocity profiles were applied. Note on accuracy/S-44 survey standards: Considering the intended output from this survey (IHO Order 1a - Areas shallower than 100 metres where under-keel clearance is less critical but features of concern to surface shipping may exist.) and using an average depth of 2000 m as ‘d’ in the IHO Standard Equation - the allowable Total Vertical Uncertainty (TVU) must be < 26m which indeed the data has achieved (by comparison with overlapping datasets from other surveys/agency data). IHO Order 1a Horizontal positioning accuracy: 5.0 m + 5% of depth (95% Confidence level)(~105 m at a mean depth of 2000 m) Vertical positioning accuracy: 2.5 m < 26.0 m = Sqrt((0.5 m)^2+(0.013 x 2000 m)^2)

  • Canadian Anchorages and Anchorage Areas is comprised of four shapefiles which include anchorage areas (ACHARE) and single ship anchorages (ACHBRT). The shapefiles are either one with points and one with polygons for each of the two types of anchorages. These files are a comprehensive dataset of anchorages and anchorage areas in Canadian navigable waters. This dataset will be updated as needed.
