Found 10 records similar to Ontario provincial land cover 1996 - 28 classes
The land cover classes consist of vegetation types (such as forest, wetlands and agricultural crops or pasture) and categories of non-vegetated surface (such as water bodies, bedrock outcrops or settlements). These classes reflect the nature of the land surface rather than actual or potential land use. The 2000 Edition of the Ontario Land Cover Data Base is the Second Edition of this provincial land cover classification. The coverage is derived wholly from Landsat-7 Thematic Mapper (TM) satellite data frames recorded between 1999 and 2002, most from 2000 onward.
The 3 combined land cover databases: * Far North Land Cover v1.4 * Southern Ontario Land Resource Information System (SOLRIS) v1.2 * the Provincial Land Cover 2000 Edition While each of these source products has differing pixel resolutions, projections and classifications, the resulting OLCC database is a standardized product with a: * pixel resolution of 15 metres * coordinate system of Ontario Lambert Conformal Conic * class structure of 29 land cover classes. The standardized classification has been accomplished at the expense of the more detailed class structures in the source land cover products. Where possible, the original land cover products should be used for analysis. This is an update to OLCC v1.0.
This dataset combines: * Far North Land Cover * Southern Ontario Land Resource Information System * Provincial Land Cover 2000 Edition While each of these source products has different pixel resolutions, projections and classifications, the combined OLCC data set is a standardized product. It has a: * 15 meter pixel resolution * Ontario Lambert Conformal Conic coordinate system * 30 land cover class structure The standardized classification has been accomplished at the expense of the more detailed class structures contained in the original 3 products. Where possible, the original land cover products should be used for analysis.
Get data on forest fires, compiled annually for the National Forestry Database The National Forestry Database includes national forest data and forest management statistics to seve as a credible, accurate and reliable source of information on forest management and its impact on the forest resource. Forest fire data is grouped into eight categories, which are further broken down by geographic location. These include: * number of fires by cause class and response category * area burned by cause class and response category * number of fires by month and response category * area burned by month and response category * number of fires by fire size class and response category * area burned by fire size class and response category * area burned by productivity class, stocking class, maturity class and response category * other fire statistics, such as property losses
This data covers the entire Far North from 2005-2011. The data is provided in both grid and vector formats. It is broken into layers that cover UTM zones 15, 16 and 17. Layers representing each level of the classification hierarchy described in the data specs have been provided: * class * group * section Can be used to create a consistent map to meet regional - to landscape level analysis (1:100,000).
Elementary class organizations for each school in Ontario, based on a count date in September of each school year. For each elementary class, the data include: * school year * school board name * school name * class number * junior kindergarten, kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 3 and 4-8 enrolment Data is based on reports submitted by school boards in each school year in accordance with Ontario’s class size regulation (O. Reg. 132/12).
The Ontario Dam Inventory (ODI) is an inventory of medium and large dams throughout Ontario. It uses a point-based system (x, y location) to identify each dam location. The ODI does not contain: * small dams * small water control structures * beaver dams * water crossings * road embankments * locks * falls * rapids * culverts Each dam location has an identifier that can be used to link to other dam information databases.
A statistical summary of census farm related data. This data is based on the Census of Agriculture, and includes: * number and area of census farms in Canada and the Provinces * Ontario census farms, broken down by industry, capital value and total farm capital, total gross farm receipts, cropland, and total farm area * number of census farms and farm operators in Canada and the Provinces * number of census farms and farm operators by county * number of census farms by county * classification of Ontario census farms, broken down by size of operation, economic class and total value of sales, industry, and capital value * farmland area classified by use of land and by county * farm capital value by county
This new data class brings over data from the Waste Management Information System (WMIS), which is an MS Access based database used by MNR to track Waste Management Sites. This was married with the spatial data from Waste Disposal Sites where possible Different Waste Disposal Site types collected by the Ministry of Natural Resources include: * Compost Disposal * Hazardous Waste Disposal * Household Waste Disposal * Industrial Waste Disposal * Septic Drying Bed * Septic Field * Sewage Disposal * Tile Bed * Transfer Station Instructions for downloading this dataset: * select the link below and scroll down the metadata record page until you find Transfer Options in the Distribution Information section * select the link beside the Data for download label * you must provide your name, organization and email address in order to access the dataset This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system *[MNR]: Ministry of Natural Resources *[WMIS]: Waste Management Information System *[MS]: Microsoft
Part of the Nova Scotia Topographic Database (NSTDB), the land cover theme layer is updated and maintained from aerial photography. Land cover is limited to treed areas over 3600m2 in size and over two metres in height. Orchards, nurseries, tree lines, and single landmark trees are also included. Land Cover feature codes and their descriptions are provided with the download in a NSTDB feature code table.
