Information about roads under MNRF jurisdiction may fall within the responsibility of several different ministry branches and including: * Forests Division * Parks, Lands & Waters Branch * Resource access roads The dataset also contains roads not under the jurisdiction of the MNRF like municipal roads and provincial highways. These are sourced from the Ontario Road Network. *[MNRF]: Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry
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 shows the locations of ignition points for forest fires less than 40 hectares in size. Fires that grow larger than 40 hectares are mapped in the Fire Disturbance Area dataset. The Forest Fire Info Map shows active fires, current fire danger and restricted fire zones in place due to high fire danger.
This dataset shows the boundaries of the province's six fire management zones that existed prior to 2014 in which most forest fires received the same type of response. These management zones were based on: * common forest and forest fire management objectives * land use * density of values at risk * fire load * forest ecology The 2014 Wildland Fire Management Strategy moved from a zone-based approach to one where each wildland fire is assessed and receives an appropriate response according to the circumstances and condition of the fire.
Get data on areas where outdoor fires are not permitted. This dataset shows areas where outdoor fires are restricted in accordance with the Forest Fires Prevention Act. There are two reasons why a restricted fire zone is in effect: * outdoor conditions are extremely dry * the number of fires occurring has stretched firefighting resources to capacity A restricted fire zone is a temporary measure for extreme situations and is lifted as soon as conditions permit. The Forest Fire Info Map shows active fires, current fire danger and restricted fire zones in place due to high fire danger.
A Fire Disturbance Area represents the mapped exterior perimeter of a forest fire. Mapping is derived from a variety of sources, such as GPS points and digitized paper maps. Prior to 1998, only fires greater than 200 hectares were mapped. Since 1998, fires greater than 40 hectares have been mapped.
This document provides Canadians with an annual summary of selected aviation safety data. The TSB gathers and uses this data during the course of our investigations to analyse safety deficiencies and identify risks in the Canadian transportation system. At the end of the year, an annual summary is produced and published as open information.
Get data on fire response plan area boundaries and recommended response types for wildfires. This dataset shows the boundaries of fire response plan areas and provides the recommended response type that corresponds to the official fire response plan for each area. Fire response types include: * full response * modified response * monitored response * prescribed fire The Forest Fire Info Map shows active fires, current fire danger and restricted fire zones in place due to high fire danger.
Get data on boundaries of local climatic areas used for forest fire weather forecasting. This dataset shows the boundaries of administrative areas used for forest fire weather forecasting. North of the French River, boundaries correspond closely with Environment Canada’s areas for public weather forecasting. South of the French River, 25 Environment Canada areas are combined into six larger areas for provincial forecasting.
Data has been collected primarily using a depth measurement device, such as an echo-sounder, in combination with a GPS for horizontal positioning. Other survey methods, such as bathymetric LiDAR may also have been used. The survey method used in each body of water is shown in the Bathymetry Index. *[GPS]: Global Positioning System
