There are currently 4 designations: * Niagara Escarpment Plan * Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan * protected countryside * Urban River Valley
The purpose of this dataset is to identify the location of river valley connections.
This dataset consists of information from reports received by the Spills Action Centre (SAC). They are generated and completed by SAC following the initial report of a spill. The data includes: * the reference number assigned to the spill * the municipality in which the spill occurred * what was impacted (e.g. land, water, air, or combination) * the substance being discharged (e.g. oil, gases, chemical, etc.) * whether the environmental impact is confirmed, possible, or not anticipated, and * the source/sector of the spill. The data reflects the information as reflected in the report, following the incident. All spills reported to SAC are recorded in the database, regardless of whether or not the Ministry provides field response.

The outer boundary of the Greenbelt Area as defined by Ontario Regulation 59/05. The outer boundaries of Greenbelt area includes lands within the: * Niagara Escarpment Plan Area * Oak Ridges Moraine Area * lands designated as Protected Countryside * lands designated as Urban River Valley
The data contains the following mapping layers from the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan: * Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan outer boundary * Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan designations, including: * natural core area * natural linkage area * countryside area * rural settlement * Palgrave Estates residential community * settlement area The data also contains associated policy designation mapping.
Concentration levels from soil sampled in urban and rural parklands in the province. Data includes: * station name and location (rounded to 1 km precision) * sample date * results for 35 inorganics (1991) * results for 8 volatile organic compounds (2009)
The Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data is organized into 20km x 20km tiles with a spatial resolution of 5m. This data is intended to be used for pre-engineering survey and design as well as the production of planimetric mapping at differing accuracies. This data is intended for GIS and remote sensing application that require a high resolution, high accuracy elevation model.

Fire management agreements divide land into 4 areas: * Crown Protection Area (CPA): The Crown is responsible for responding to all fires in the CPA * Municipal Protection Area (MPA): The municipality is responsible for responding in the MPA * Federal Protection Area (FPA): The federal government is responsible for responding in the FPA * Northern Fire Protection Area (NFPA): The local fire department (mostly in unorganized areas) is responsible for responding to all incidents and the suppression of fires in the NFPA *[CPA]: Crown Protection Area *[FPA]: Federal Protection Area *[NFPA]: Northern Fire Protection Area *[MPA]: Municipal Protection Area

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s Make a Topographic Map is a mapping application that features the best available topographic data and imagery for Ontario. You can: * easily toggle between traditional map backgrounds and high-resolution imagery * choose to overlay the topographic information with the imagery * turn satellite imagery on or off * customize your map by adding your own text * print your custom map Data features include: * roads * trails * lakes * rivers * wooded areas * wetlands * provincial parks * municipal, township and other administrative boundaries You don’t need special software or licenses to use this application. __Technical information__ Using cached imagery and topographic data, the application provides a fast, seamless display at pre-defined scales. The caches are updated annually.
