    This dataset is a collection of 3D mass points and breakline features that were interpreted using photogrammetry from aerial photography. The elevation data is organized into tiles grouped into packages for download. 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.

    Bathymetry is the measurement of water depth in lakes. From the 1940s to the 1990s, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry produced bathymetry maps for over 11,000 lakes across Ontario. The data can be used by the general public and GIS specialists for: * climate change modelling * fish monitoring and other ecological applications * hydrologic cycle modelling * recreational fishing maps * watershed-based water budgeting The maps were created using simple methods to determine lake depths. They were meant for resource management purposes only. Little effort was made to identify shoals and other hazards when creating these bathymetric maps. Since this data was collected, many constructed and naturally occurring events could mean that the depth information is now inaccurate, so these maps should not be used for navigational purposes. In many cases, these maps still represent the only authoritative source of bathymetry data for lakes in Ontario. __Technical information__ These maps are being converted to digital GIS line data which can be found in the [Bathymetry Line](https://geohub.lio.gov.on.ca/datasets/mnrf::bathymetry-line) data class. The [Bathymetry Index](https://geohub.lio.gov.on.ca/datasets/mnrf::bathymetry-index) data class identifies if GIS vector lines have been created and the location of mapped lakes. The historic paper maps have been scanned into digital files. We will add new digital files to this dataset if they become available. The digital files have been grouped and packaged by regions into 13 compressed (zipped) files for download. Note: package 99 contains scanned maps where the location shown on the map could not be determined.

    This Ontario Hydro Network (OHN) small scale dataset is intended for cartographic and web mapping display purposes, not for analytical work. Small scale waterbody, watercourse and shoreline data is available at the following seven scales: * 1:100,000 * 1:200,000 * 1:500,000 * 1:1,000,000 * 1:2,000,000 * 1:5,000,000 * 1:10,000,000 Search the [Land Information Ontario (LIO) Warehouse OHN Products Composite File Geodatabase](https://geohub.lio.gov.on.ca/datasets/land-information-ontario-lio-warehouse-ontario-hydro-network-ohn-products-composite-file-geodatabase) to download a file geodatabase of all the OHN’s publicly available (Open) derivative cartographic products taken from the LIO Warehouse on a bi-weekly basis.

    The Ontario Digital Surface Model (Imagery-Derived) is a raster elevation product that was generated from the elevation point clouds created via pixel-correlation from aerial photography. A DSM is the highest reflective surface of features captured by the sensor. This surface is also referred to as the first reflective surface. The DSM may include: * treetops * rooftops and tops of towers * telephone poles * other natural or artificial features * ground surface if there is no vegetative ground cover 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 LIO Topographic Data Cache is a collection of topographic data, that has been preprocessed for fast, seamless display at predefined scales. The topographic data includes constructed and natural features that make up Ontario’s landscape. The cache provides limited data from areas outside Ontario’s boundaries, such as the United States and adjacent provinces and territories. __Technical information__ Two versions of the LIO Topographic Data Cache are available: 1. The traditional raster version is available for a variety of GIS applications and is updated annually. 2. The vector version is suitable for online web map applications as well as modern GIS software and is updated twice a year. Contributing data layers may have different maintenance and update cycles. Some cache layers have been processed in a way that makes it easier for them to be displayed in a mapping product. Other layers are unchanged from the authoritative data. The cartographic symbology used in the data cache is intentionally muted to allow users to showcase their data. The LIO Topographic Data Cache is created from many source datasets, which are described in the LIO Topographic Data Cache user guide. If you are interested in getting this authoritative data, you can download it from the [Ontario GeoHub](http://www.ontario.ca/geohub). For instructions on getting a copy of either version of the cache for use in mapping applications, visit the [Ontario GeoHub](http://www.ontario.ca/geohub).

    These maps are available for the Far North Land Use Planning Area at 2 scales (1:100,000 and 1:250,000). The maps were created as a resource for community-based Land Use Planning in the Far North of Ontario.

    The Ontario Stewardship Program has established Stewardship Councils across Ontario. Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry staff no longer directly administer and support Ontario Stewardship Councils. Community-based partners and stakeholders now independently administer Stewardship Councils. We are no longer updating this data. It is best suited for historical research and analysis. __Stewardship Zone__ The Ontario Stewardship Program divides the province into four administrative regions or zones. Any given Stewardship Council will fall into one of these zones. __Stewardship Council Area__ The Ontario Stewardship Program established Stewardship Councils across southern Ontario and a portion of Northern Ontario. Where these councils have defined administrative boundaries, the location is stored in this data class. __Stewardship Council Location__ Most councils have established administrative boundaries that generally conform to upper tier municipalities. There are some councils in Northern Ontario which are generally located in and around a certain geographic location but do not have established administrative boundaries. This data class is primarily used to store point locations associated with these northern councils.

    Data are contaminants in tissue of caged mussels put in the river for 3 weeks at about 25 stations located on the Canadian and US side of the river. The main objective of the study is to identify contaminant sources, or source areas requiring more detailed follow-up investigations, based on the level  of contaminants in the mussels. Compounds monitored include: * organochlorinated pesticides * Polychlorinated biphenyls * dioxins/furan * chlorinated benzenes * Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons * industrial organic compounds

    The Ontario Digital Surface Model (DSM) (Lidar-Derived) Land Information Ontario dataset is a raster product that provides a representation of both surface and ground features derived from a classified lidar point cloud. A DSM is the highest reflective surface of features captured by the sensor. This surface is also referred to as the first reflective surface. The DSM may include: * treetops * rooftops and tops of towers * telephone poles * other natural or artificial features * ground surface if there is no vegetative ground cover The DSM data is available in 1 km by 1 km non-overlapping tiles grouped into packages for download. This dataset is a compilation of lidar data from multiple acquisition projects, so specifications, parameters and sensors may vary by project. 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.

    Get mapping data related to the Northwest Greater Toronto Area Transmission Corridor Identification Study. In June 2019, the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines along with Ontario’s electricity system planner, the Independent Electricity System Operator, launched the Northwest GTA Transmission Corridor Identification Study to identify an appropriate corridor of land for use by future power lines if and when the need arises. The shapefiles available for download outline the outer boundaries for: * the Northwest GTA Transmission Corridor Identification Study area, announced in June 2019 * the Northwest GTA Transmission Corridor Narrowed Area of Interest, announced in September 2019 * The Northwest GTA Transmission Corridor 2020 Narrowed Area of Interest, announced in November 2020
