Site Regions and Site Districts of Ontario represent an early Ecological Land Classification (ELC) system originally developed by Angus Hills. This dataset was revised by the ELC Working Group in 2000 to better reflect new information and new technology. The Site Regions of Ontario was used for descriptive, planning, and resource management purposes. This upper level in its hierarchy was most useful for provincial and regional roll-ups of data and for strategic planning.
SOLRIS is based on MNRF's Ecological Land Classification (ELC) for southern Ontario (Lee et al, 1998). It is a land use inventory that supports a number of key Provincial initiatives including Source Water Protection, Natural Spaces, Biodiversity Conservation and State of Resources Reporting. The data covers the date ranges from 1999-2002 and 2009-2011. *[MNRF]: Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry *[SOLRIS]: Southern Ontario Land Resource Information System
This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this dataset. Ecological Land Classification (ELC) is an approach which endeavours to subdivide the landscape into significant ecological units and to organize complex interrelationships into identified geographical areas with similar properties. It is a hierarchical system that captures information at the following scales as per the Ecological Land Classification and Evaluation Reference Manual (1980): Ecoprovince - >1:3 000 000 Ecoregion - 1:1 000 000 - 1:3 000 000 Ecodistrict - 1:250 000 - 1:1 000 000 Ecosection - 1:100 000 - 1:250 000 Ecosite - 1:10 000 - 1:20 000 Ecoelement - 1:1 000 - 1:5 000.
The Ecological Land Classification (ELC) for Nova Scotia provides a hierarchical mapping of the province's forest ecosystems into ecosections, ecodistricts and ecoregions. It includes interpretation of the dominant natural disturbance regimes and potential climax forests at the ecosection level.
Displays areas regulated as a conservation reserve in order to: * permanently protect representative ecosystems, biodiversity and significant elements of Ontario's natural and cultural heritage * provide opportunities for ecologically sustainable land uses, including traditional outdoor heritage activities and associated economic benefits * allow for scientific research and provide points of reference to support monitoring of ecological change on the broader landscape Official LIO title: Conservation Reserve Regulated
The Ecological Land Classification (ELC version 2015) for Nova Scotia provides a hierarchical mapping of the province's forest ecosystems into ecosections, ecodistricts and ecoregions. It includes interpretation of the dominant natural disturbance regimes and potential climax forests at the ecosection level.
This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this dataset. The Ecological Land Classification (ELC) Status is a supporting dataset to the Ecological Land Classification dataset. The ELC Status represents a geodatabase feature class of the ELC study areas.
Ontario provincial parks are classified as one of the following : * Wilderness * Nature Reserve * Cultural Heritage * Natural Environment * Waterway * Recreational These parks are managed by Ontario Parks. The Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006 guides how these areas are planned and managed. The purpose of the Act is to: * permanently protect a system of provincial parks and conservation reserves * protect Ontario's natural and cultural heritage * maintain biodiversity * provide opportunities for ecologically sustainable recreation 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
This dataset is used to: * assess biodiversity levels * define seed zones * map ecosystem types * set targets for the identification of natural heritage systems
The spatial record for all the province's geographic areas affected by provincial level, area-specific land use policy. This layer may contain geometry from the: * provincial parks-regulated layer * conservation reserves-regulated layer * natural heritage values area layer * wilderness areas layer * crown land MNR acquisitions layer * crown land MNR unpatented layer * CLUPA geometry (enhanced management areas and general use areas) layer Not to be used as a source of protected areas (provincial park, conservation reserve, etc.), crown land or private land boundaries.
