Along with the above mentioned sources, Land Information Ontario data is available, but I can't speak for its accuracy - http://www.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/land-information-ontario. What you probably want is featured on geogratis.

You can also look at geogratis, which is a Canadian repository for all sorts of data http://geogratis.gc.ca/geogratis/MostPopular?lang=en this link will guide you to data related to topographic data. Geobase as a good collection of administrative boundaries, such as Municipalities http://www.geobase.ca/geobase/en/data/admin/index.html

I know folks who have used the Yelp API http://www.yelp.com/developers to download data within their dataset, though they have limits on the data you can download, it is a rich dataset.

For a nice set of topographic data for Ontario, there is a fun interactive map which allows you to: Select various areas and zoom in at a high magnification Enable a variety of active layers (such as contour lines, roads, water polygons, conservation areas and so on) Download the selected areas into a number of formats (shp, AutoCAD DWG, DXF etc) You ...

Get a zip-code boundary layer and run Polygon Neighbors. Review How Polygon Neighbors Works and Up-To-Date Zip-Code Boundaries Picture below might be different than your ArcMap looks, but the buttons and procedure should be the same. Perhaps this is an open-source solution. I have not tested or used this solution which seems to require GRASS 6+ : from ...

like the previous answer this is also a commercial provider: DDS digital data services GmbH, based in Karlsruhe, Germany offers postcode data for most of the world. Much of their data targets at geomarketing applications and thus offers even subunits of postalcodes. http://www.ddsgeo.com/products/postal-boundaries.html You would not get data in this level ...

You will find these data here: www.geopostcodes.com

Few sites give neighborhood zip codes like this site. Most just give the standard Census City and Communities. http://www.cccarto.com/ca/alameda_zipcodes/index.html

You could of course filter out the data points one-of-two or one-of-four, but you'd be able to retain the original information in a fraction of the original size if you convert it to a binary raster. Lots of ways to get there, and most assume the point data is sorted (better to be sorted west-to-east in bands from north-to-south), but you can populate that ...

Unless anything has changed in the past couple years, all proposed updates have to be submitted as a feedback/request to Bing. If you go to https://connect.microsoft.com/bingmaps/Feedback you can propose changes. You can also go to http://bing.com/maps and in the lower left corner you'll see a link called "Feedback." Click this, and a feedback box will pop ...

I don't see a formal way to pass them data but you could use the feedback tool in the bing maps app and they do have a category for missing roads or incorrect roads. Possibly telling them that you will provide data might get you somewhere. I have tried this with google maps in the past and they eventually got to it.

It looks like some building footprints have been added in OpenStreetMap, but it is not complete. You can download what building footprints there are currently using Overpass-Turbo, I already made a query to search for all types of buildings you will just need to run it and then download the GeoJSON and work with it from there. If you need a shapefile you ...

Not all cities have this data. There is generally a fee associated with acquiring it. It is generally beyond the resources of most cities to develop this data themselves. If a city does possess this data it is usually acquired through the County/Parish or Metropolitan Planning Organization/Council of Governments that the city belongs to. You may want to ...

As @SaraBarnes said in the comments, you will likely first have to export the file to a shapefile or feature class. Next, in order to classify unique values, you have to "Add All Values" or add specific values you'd like to classify with the "Add Values..." buttons in the Symbology tab, as shown below. You can then set symbology based on those values.

I believe the link your looking for is at the start of the tutorial here under the introduction heading >> Data. EDIT: The subfolder OP is looking for does not exist in the zip provided - Must have been overlooked by qgis!

In Sql Server Spatial select geometry::STGeomFromWKB(0x01030000000100000005000000E968ED3E66CF1D41BD6859D5EEE15941E968ED3E66CF1D41844B22F8E1E959417156F69608241F41844B22F8E1E959417156F69608241F41BD6859D5EEE15941E968ED3E66CF1D41BD6859D5EEE15941,3857).ToString();

You could use OpenStreetMap coastlines. The data is provided by Jochen Topf from here as a shapefile free of charge: http://openstreetmapdata.com/data/coastlines. Plaese considere ther the ODbL license when working with OpenStreetMap data.

It will depend on a few factors, like what type of accuracy, coverage, and cost you looking at. If you are interested in free, and the accuracy and coverage isn't as important, a good start would be the Canada NTS datasets. These datasets are broken into alpha numeric coding, so you will have to look at your map coverage. Here is a link to the download area: ...

As a topographic base, you could use SRTM-Elevation-Data which comes as raster-dataset: Link: http://srtm.csi.cgiar.org/SELECTION/inputCoord.asp

Have you checked EPA's WATERS program: http://water.epa.gov/scitech/datait/tools/waters/data/index.cfm. USGS also has a water monitoring program

Download QGIS, download the dataset and unzip it. Drag and drop the .tiff (geotiff raster files) and .shp (shapefile vector files) into the opened QGIS window. All the data uses the standard projection 4326 so no headaches mixing any of the datasets

Natural Earth project has these datasets and many more: http://www.naturalearthdata.com/features/

The world.dat file is a file format specifically for GnuPlot. I haven't heard of it in use anywhere else and I couldn't find anything. In a more recent blog post on that same site, the author talks about updating the world.dat file with better data - specifically from Natural Earth. Since the author starts with shape files, this same data flow could be ...

You might be able to extract some information or use Open Street Maps as a Base. Here you can search for some datasets through data.gov ArcGis provides street and highways at a certain resolution. A quick google search may yield you more results depending on what exactly you're looking for. But the above should serve you well! There may be other ...

You definitely need coordinates or to join that data with existing polygons/points. A quick look at your data shows that it is broken down into boroughs or district numbers. My next step would be to join this data in ArcGIs or QGIS (whatever solution you have available to you) to either the boroughs or districts. This will allow you to visualize the ...

I believe most GIS software that are available (such as ArcGIS, QGIS etc) can accomplish the tasks you described - adding features containing attributes along with labels describing additional information and automating various algorithms using either Model Builders or via scripting (such as Python). Another major factor in deciding is cost - QGIS in ...

Removed the previous links, which I should have checked more scrutinously, and found some information and shapefiles which hopefully would be of some use: The EEZ Boundaries (Exclusive Economic Zone) which for this purpose is mainly used to show the coastal lines and outlines of continents. http://www.marineregions.org/downloads.php#eez The main Global ...
