The vector grids system provides a spatial and statistical infrastructure that enables the integration of environmental and socio-economic data. Its exploitation allows the intersection of different spatial data within the same grid units. The results of projects obtained using this grid system can be more easily linked. This grid system forms the geographic and statistical infrastructure of the [Southern Quebec Land Accounts] (http://www.stat.gouv.qc.ca/statistiques/environnement/comptes-terre-meridional.html) from the Institut de la statistique du Québec (ISQ). He forms the geospatial and statistical context for the development of ecosystem accounting in Quebec. **In order to improve the vector grids system and the Southern Quebec Land Accounts and better anticipate the future needs of users, we would like to be informed of their use (scope, purpose of use, territory, association with other products, etc.). You can write to us at maxime.keith@stat.gouv.qc.ca **. This grid system allows for the spatial integration of various data relating to, for example, human populations, economy or land characteristics. The ISQ wishes to encourage the use of this system in projects that require the integration of multiple data sources, the analysis of these data at different spatial scales, and the monitoring of this data over time. The fixed geographical references of the grids simplify the compilation of statistics according to different territorial divisions and facilitate the monitoring of changes over time. In particular, the grid system promotes data consistency at the provincial level. The spatial intersection of the grid and the spatial data layer to be integrated allows the layer's underlying information to be carried back inside each cell in the grid. In the case of Southern Quebec Land Accounts, the spatial intersection of the grid and each of the two layers of land cover (decades of the 1990s and 2000s) allowed the dominant coverage to be carried back within each grid cell. The set of [Southern Quebec Land Accounts matrix files] (https://www.donneesquebec.ca/recherche/fr/dataset/comptes-des-terres-du-quebec-meridional-changement-de-la-couverture-terrestre) is the result of this intersection. Features: The product includes two vector grids: one consisting of 1 km² (or 1,000 m side) cells, which covers all of Quebec, and another of 2,500 m² cells (or 50 m aside, or a quarter of a hectare), which fits perfectly into the first and covers Quebec's territory south of the 52nd parallel. It should be noted that the nomenclature of this system, designed according to a Cartesian plan, has been developed so that it is possible to integrate cells with finer resolutions (up to 5 metres aside). Technically, the 50 m grid is fragmented by MRC or per part of MRC (312 parts) to avoid exceeding three million cells per grid portion and thus facilitate geospatial processing. This grid includes a total of about 350 million cells or 875,000 km2. Format: File Geodatabase (ESRI) Attribute information of 50 m cells፦ single cell code (ID_M50); - geographic code of the municipality for June 2017 (CO_MUN_2017); - Quebec Ecological Reference Framework Natural Region Code (CERQ_NV2); - coverage class codes for the beginning (t0) and end (t1) of period (CL_COUV_T00 and CL_COUV_T01). Complementary feature classes: * index of the parts of the grid; * distribution of municipalities, RCMs and administrative regions of June 2017 (Source: Department of Energy and Natural Resources (MERN) Administrative Divided System (SDA)); * division of CERQ level 2 (Source: Ministry of Environment and Fight Against climate change [MDDELCC]). Geospatial processes delivered with the grid: + ArcGIS ModelBuilder allowing spatial intersection and selecting the dominant value of the geographic layer to populate the grid; + ModelBuilder for statistical compilation of results according to different splits.

Drought is a deficiency in precipitation over an extended period, usually a season or more, resulting in a water shortage that has adverse impacts on vegetation, animals and/or people. The Climate Moisture Index (CMI) was calculated as the difference between annual precipitation and potential evapotranspiration (PET) – the potential loss of water vapour from a landscape covered by vegetation. Positive CMI values indicate wet or moist conditions and show that precipitation is sufficient to sustain a closed-canopy forest. Negative CMI values indicate dry conditions that, at best, can support discontinuous parkland-type forests.

The Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin was designed primarily as a reference volume documenting the subsurface geology of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. This GIS dataset is one of a collection of shapefiles representing part of Chapter 31 of the Atlas, Petroleum Generation and Migration in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, Figure 14, Devonian-Mississippian Petroleum System. Shapefiles were produced from archived digital files created by the Alberta Geological Survey in the mid-1990s, and edited in 2005-06 to correct, attribute and consolidate the data into single files by feature type and by figure.

This data provides the integrated cadastral framework for the specified Canada Land. The cadastral framework consists of active and superseded cadastral parcel, roads, easements, administrative areas, active lines, points and annotations. The cadastral lines form the boundaries of the parcels. COGO attributes are associated to the lines and depict the adjusted framework of the cadastral fabric.

This entry provides access to the figures and data tables that feature in the CSAS Research Document titled 'Optical, chemical, and biological oceanographic conditions on the Scotian Shelf and in the eastern Gulf of Maine in 2016'. Please consult the meta-data text file that accompanies the zip file download for the figure on the data usage policy and appropriate citation. The meta-data file also provides field descriptors and any other information that may be useful in interpreting the data provided in relation to the accompanying imagery. Abstract:

The condition of nutrients and plankton on the Scotian Shelf and in the Gulf of Maine were assessed in the context of continued warmer-than-normal surface and near bottom ocean temperatures in 2016, a pattern that started in 2008, and continued higher-than-normal stratification in summer and fall.

In 2014, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) initiated a Play-Based Regulation (PBR) pilot project as a step towards implementation of the Unconventional Regulatory Framework. One of the goals of the PBR pilot is to encourage companies in the unconventional play area to work together on plans for surface development to minimize the numbers of facilities and surface impacts. This data set is one of a series created using earth observation imagery to assess surface change caused by energy exploration. The PBR area extends from Twp.

The Cold Lake oil sands area - Township 56 to 69, Range 1 to 11, west of the 4th Meridian, falls within the Lower Athabasca Regional Plan (LARP). As part of Alberta’s Land-use Framework, LARP was developed in 2012 to set the stage for robust growth, vibrant communities and a healthy environment within the region. One of its implementation objectives is to balance the economic development of oil sands and impacts on the ecosystem and environment. This is to be achieved through an enhanced science-based monitoring for improved characterization of the environment and to collect the information necessary to understand cumulative effects.
