The National Air Photo Library (NAPL) of Natural Resources Canada archives over 6 million aerial photographs covering all of Canada, some of which date back to the 1920s. This collection includes Time Series of aerial orthophoto mosaics over a selection of major cities or targeted areas that allows to observe various changes that occurs overtime in those selected regions. These mosaics are disseminated through the Data Cube Platform implemented by NRCan using geospatial big data management technologies. These technologies enable the rapid and efficient visualization of high-resolution geospatial data and allow for the rapid generation of dynamically derived products.
This map of the first vertical derivative of the magnetic field was derived from data acquired during an aeromagnetic survey carried out by Fugro Airborne Surveys during the period April 17, 2006 to August 26, 2007. The data were recorded using a split-beam cesium vapour magnetometer (sensitivity = 0.005 nT) mounted in the tail boom of a Cessna Caravan aircraft. The nominal traverse and control line spacings were, respectively, 800 m and 2 600 m, and the aircraft flew at a nominal terrain clearance of 250 m. Traverse lines were oriented N30degreesE with orthogonal control lines. The flight path was recovered following post-flight differential corrections to the raw Global Positioning System data and inspection of ground images recorded by a vertically-mounted video camera.
The Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin was designed primarily as a reference volume documenting the subsurface geology of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. This GIS dataset is one of a collection of shapefiles representing part of Chapter 12 of the Atlas, Devonian Woodbend-Winterburn Strata of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, Figure 29, Upper Ireton Isopach and Lithofacies. Shapefiles were produced from archived digital files created by the Alberta Geological Survey in the mid-1990s, and edited in 2005-06 to correct, attribute and consolidate the data into single files by feature type and by figure.
Alberta Geological Survey created a coal and coalbed methane (CBM) database to capture and manage CBM data. The database compiles different sources and contains information on 7923 wells (15,200 formation picks, 37,357 coal picks, 495 coal analyses and 363 vitrinite reflectance measurements). From this parent dataset, individual coal zone was evaluated. This record describes the Lethbridge coal zone's calculated gas content.
This table contains 10 series, with data for years 2004 - 2009 (not all combinations necessarily have data for all years), and was last released on 2014-06-19. This table contains data described by the following dimensions (Not all combinations are available): Geography (1 items: Canada excluding Territories ...), Type of vehicle (2 items: Trucks 4.5 tonnes to 14.9 tonnes; Trucks 15 tonnes and over ...), Type of activity (5 items: Total; all activity types; Private trucking; Owner-operator trucking; For-hire trucking ...).
This data provides the integrated cadastral framework for the specified Canada Land. The cadastral framework consists of active and superseded cadastral parcel, roads, easements, administrative areas, active lines, points and annotations. The cadastral lines form the boundaries of the parcels. COGO attributes are associated to the lines and depict the adjusted framework of the cadastral fabric.
This Alberta Official Statistic describes investment (capital expenditures) in Alberta’s Oil and Gas Industry. Oil and Gas Industry data is obtained from Statistics Canada. Statistics Canada reports this data under the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) sub-sector 211 (Oil and Gas Extraction). The “Oil and Gas Extraction” sub-sector consists of “Conventional Oil and Gas Extraction” national industry (NAICS 211113) and “Non-Conventional Oil Extraction” (or oil sands) national industry (NAICS 211114).
Survey of innovation, logging and manufacturing industries, percentage of plants who introduced new or significantly improved products onto the market before competitors by type of plant and the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) for Canada, provinces and territories in 2005.

Counts of nesting pelicans and cormorants at the Lavallee Lake colony are conducted each spring via aerial photography, and mortality is counted each fall by walking transects through the colony. Pelicans and cormorants feed on small and large freshwater fish up to 100 km from the colony and are an indicator of the health of the aquatic/terrestrial interface in the ecosystem.
