Daily Ice charts represent the best estimate of ice conditions at the valid time of the chart, based on an integration of data from a variety of sources, such as satellite, and ship and aircraft-based visual observations.

The charts describe ice concentration in tenths, ice types or stage of development and the form of ice. The boundary lines for different ice conditions, of particular importance to navigation, are determined by standards.

Ice information is presented in the Egg Code format and colour-coded using the World Meteorological Organization Standard.

Regional ice charts show the analysis of ice conditions for a given region valid on Mondays. They are based on an analysis and integration of data from: satellite imagery, weather and oceanographic information, visual observations from ship and aircraft. Satellite imagery is collected over a few days in order to have complete coverage of the area. The charts indicate the concentration in tenths, stage of development and form of ice.

The Canadian Ice Service acquires Synthetic Aperture Radar Satellite imagery in order to have data available for the provision of ice information. Upon request of specific clients, Synthetic Aperture Radar imagery will be analysed in more detail than for the daily ice charts and these image analysis usually available to the public. The area covered by the image analysis coincides with an area related to the satellite path. The path of the satellite changes each day so the chart area shifts from one day to the next.

The Ice Thickness Program Collection contains ice thickness and snow depth measurements for 195 sites. Sites such as Eureka and Resolute have ice thickness records that go as far back as 1947. Record length varies from station to station with some of the Arctic stations exceeding 50 years of observations. Measurements are taken at approximately the same location every year on a weekly basis, starting after freeze-up when the ice is safe to walk on, and continuing until break-up or when the ice becomes unsafe.
