Contained within the Atlas of Canada Poster Map Series, is a poster showing the different types of land cover across the Country. The map is primarily based on AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) data, offering very precise detail. The land cover image contains 31 land cover classes. These have been grouped into 9 large land cover classes from coniferous forest to snow and ice.

This land cover data set was derived from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) sensor operating on board the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites. Information on the NOAA series of satellites can be found at www.noaa.gov/satellites.html The vegetation and land cover information set has been classified into twelve categories. Information on the classification of the vegetation and land cover, raster to vector conversion, generalization for cartographic presentations is included in the paper "The Canada Vegetation and Land Cover: A Raster and Vector Data Set for GIS Applications - Uses in Agriculture" (https://geogratis.cgdi.gc.ca/download/landcover/scale/gis95ppr.pdf). A soil quality evaluation was obtained by cross-referencing the AVHRR information with Census of Agriculture records and biophysical (Soil Landscapes of Canada) data and is also included in the above paper.

Contained within the Atlas of Canada's Various Map Series, 1965 to 2006, is a bilingual map produced jointly by Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Space Agency. The map was produced using 45 separate images taken by AVHRR sensors aboard satellites of the National Aeronautics and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The satellite data was enhanced so that certain major land-cover types could be more readily told apart from one another. AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) data has pixel resolution of about 1 x 1 kilometre size on the ground.

Contained within the Atlas of Canada's Various Map Series, 1965 to 2006, is is the first of a planned series of regional satellite image maps of all of Canada. It was one of the first satellite image maps to combine imagery and other map components such as boundaries, roads, railways and place names. The imagery is a composite of many images from the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) satellites. The imagery was captured between August 11 to 20, 1990 to obtain cloud-free coverage.

The Crop Condition Assessment Program (CCAP) is developed and maintained by the Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Section (RSGA) within the Agriculture Division. The CCAP combines remote sensing, GIS, and the Internet to provide reliable, objective, and timely information on crop and pasture/rangeland conditions using a mapping application for the whole Canadian agricultural area and the northern portion of the United States. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) series of satellites carrying the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) records images of the entire Earth's surface twice a day at one kilometre resolution. This detector captures two spectral bands (red and infrared) that have proven to be extremely useful for vegetation monitoring to produce the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).

The Canadian long term satellite data record (LTDR) derived from 1-km resolution Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data was produced by the Canada Center for Remote Sensing (CCRS). Processing included: geolocation, calibration, and compositing using Earth Observation Data Manager (Latifovic et al. 2005), cloud screening (Khlopenkov and Trishchenko, 2006), BRDF correction (Latifovic et. al., 2003), atmosphere and other corrections as described in Cihlar et.
