I have two ideas: Check out the Statistics Canada site for .shp downloads. It looks like "Census Subdivisions" is what you are after, although there may be more detailed products there. An alternative is to use the ArcGIS basemaps in ArcMap (File > Add Data > Add Base Map > National Geographic). These are great for displaying down to the street level in ...

This looks to me like a one degree wide and half degree high sheet layout of topographic maps similar to NTS. Created with QGIS using vector raster. The numbering looks like a combination of West and North coordinates in 1/10 degrees. This map contains an overview of 1:100,000 maps with the same numbering scheme: ...

The default projection in D3 is the U.S.-centric d3.geo.albersUsa projection. This is a composite projection design to display the 48 contiguous United States, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico. If you want to make a map of Canada, you’ll have to specify the appropriate projection rather than relying on the default.

As dassouki mentions this is not going to be done cheaply. The GeoPinpoint Suite is geocoding millions of records each year and is applying an advanced address-parsing technology ensuring superior match rates even with the most incomplete data. GeoPinpoint Suite's innovative modular design allows the software to encompass future enhancements without ...

The VBA procedure still works. (The smiley button is not there). I loaded all data for Ontario into the SymbologyToolcanvec.mxd from the 11 File Geodatabases. Assuming the .style file is in "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.0\ArcMap" Open VBA Customize -> VBA Macros -> Visual Basic Editor from the main menu. Once in VBA Expend the Project ...

If the main Toporama WMS site is unavailable, www.AlaskaMapped.org has the seamless canadian 250k topos scanned from NTS paper maps under the BDL Extras service (also see here). In the online map browser it's called the SDMI.Topo layer. Toporama is is more up to date, has better resolution (1:50k) and let's you grab/leave-out certain layers while Alaska ...

The FTP site is (much faster to get the data downloaded) ftp://ftp2.cits.rncan.gc.ca/pub/ To see them on Google Maps (copy and paste long url) ...

Those look like the grids for the National Topographic System in Canada. They can be downloaded from Geogratis as the Vector Indexes of the National Topographic System of Canada. There is a folder in there called kml_files full of .kmz files. If you prefer, you can get them more easily by downloading them zipped (15mb) at all scales from the WMS in ...

ArcGIS.com has the Canada Topo Map service which mashes together data from a number of sources -- from Canvec (which drives the already mentioned Toporama) to the deprecated National Topographic Database to TeleAtlas. The result is a bit disjointed and often inaccurate, at least in the areas that I'm familiar with, but might be okay for your purposes.

The Atlas of Canada Base Maps provide coverage of the entire Canadian landmass. Data elements are feature coded and structurally clean. Base map components are available in four scales and a number of data exchange formats. 1:2 million 1:7.5 million 1:20 million 1:30 miliion ArcInfo e00 or DXF. ...

You could use something like this for some rough coordinates: http://www.getlatlon.com/ http://universimmedia.pagesperso-orange.fr/geo/loc.htm Or, use the Natural Earth dataset: http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/

There is an obvious flaw in your algorithm for step 2. Consider, say for instance, Airport Rd, WA where it intersects on the eastern end with the Pullman Hwy map. The nearest city is Moscow, ID which is not necessarily where the mail comes from considering it is a separate state. If, however, you wish to carry on with that method, you can obtain the ...

Geobase would have been my first suggestion but aside from the way the tiles are separated to relatively small areas, I have personally had many issues with the data itself. See our own wiki for more details. If I remember correctly then 1 arc-seconds (about 30m resolution) (SRTM1) coverage only includes continental US in and parts of Canada but does not ...

First, I'd like to confirm that you do have the Canadian NTv2 grid file installed (ArcGIS install, pedata\ntv2\canada\NTv2_0.gsb). To check if the data is NAD 1927, unproject it to NAD 1983. Redefine it as NAD 1927, rather than reproject it. Perhaps that's what you've done, but I'm not sure. During this process, you can also check the values in the ...

Orbview-3 1m panchromatic and 4m multi-spectral data is now available free from the USGS EarthExplorer. I just searched for Quebec and found 100+ scenes available from 2003-2005. It's satellite imagery, not orthophotography but it is high resolution. You can pansharpen (or merge) the 1m pan and 4m multispectral to generate a 1m colour image.

there is the "Géoboutique Québec", there you will find orthophotography from 15cm to 1m covering almost all the province. They are not free, it's about $50 a photo for example, but it's a very good quality material. The site is in french. Au revoir.

I thought I would add a small contribution. When downloading many NTS sheets the shapefiles include the NTS sheet number. A small change allows the ArcGIS addin to work for all sheets downloaded into a single folder. change line: fcs = gp.ListFeatureClasses(searchstring) to: fcs = gp.ListFeatureClasses("*"+searchstring)

CanVec Symbolization Utility 1.1 automates this process: http://resources.arcgis.com/gallery/file/Geodatabase-Gallery/details?entryID=AB5B2827-1422-2418-34ED-4EFC6E20238C

You can start by importing the styles into style manager. The manual way is to classify a Shapefile layer by Unique Values with CODE. For each CODE you then need to match up the # with the style that you imported. I haven't seen the VBA code in detail, but I'm guessing it automates this procedure.

Here is a download site for Canadian digital topo maps. http://geogratis.gc.ca/geogratis/en/product/search.do?id=CB864DC7-25A1-5136-57F4-C095CE1C6A6D Edit: Actually after digging around a little more, this may be closer to what you are looking for. http://geogratis.gc.ca/geogratis/en/service/toporama.html
