Library of Parliament Catalogue
Library of Parliament
Votes: 1
The Library of Parliament Catalogue, previously not available to the public has just been made available. The Catalogue provides an overview of the Library of Parliament collection and information about service Parliamentarians. The link itself is hidden, and not easily accessible without extensive assistance from an individual familiar with the site. As this is a new addition to the public holding, it would be advantageous to point to the site via the Open Government Portal. Here is the link: https://parl-gc.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?vid=01CALP_INST:01CALP&sortby=rank&lang=en  It just seems like it could be a neat thing to add. Yes, access to certain functions are limited but for Canadians, it would be neat to allow them a preview into what our parliamentary library produces and holds.

Obstacle Limitation Surface
Transport Canada
Votes: 354
Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS) are a series of surfaces that set the height limits of object around an airport, runway or helicopter pad. It would contain the main approach and transitional surfaces for runways and the outer surface for airport around Canada. OLS are used during the planning process for developers/municipalities alongside municipal zoning regulations to define permissible heights around aerodromes for site specific applications. Flight paths polygons could be created with an elevation attribute at sea level. Reference points could also be giving to help create an outline of the flight path.

Historical Fisheries Catch Data
Fisheries and Oceans Canada
Votes: 945
This dataset would include historical harvest data for all Pacific and Atlantic fisheries. Data would encompass harvested weights and landed values for multiple species within every type of fishing licence offered by DFO. For Pacific fisheries, these data are already available from the following webpage (particularly 1996-2005): http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/stats/comm/summ-somm/index-eng.htm Unfortunately, the formatting of the data in these links makes them very difficult to work with. A single, comprehensive dataset would be useful for enhancing the public's knowledge of marine fisheries and would not violate DFO's privacy policies.

Detailed Fisheries Harvest Data
Fisheries and Oceans Canada
Votes: 908
This dataset would include highly detailed information about commercial fisheries harvests on both coasts. In the Pacific, for example, the data would include harvested species and bycatch, the licence used to fish those species, gear type, Pacific Fisheries Management Area (PFMA), harvested weight, and landed value. Per DFO policy, datapoints that are affected by the 3-party rule would be removed for privacy reasons, to ensure that no individually identifying information is made public. Currently, these data are only available from DFO through specific data requests. Processing these requests takes valuable time away from resource-strapped DFO personnel and results in frustratingly long waits for citizens wanting to use the data.
