A series of relevant spatial datasets were compiled to construct an Agricultural Potential Index model which combines multiple criteria that influence agricultural suitability. For more information on the Agriculutural Potential Index Model, please see the metadata link.
The main objectives of the MVAP Project is to produce aerial photography of the Mackenzie Delta development area and Mackenzie Gas Project route to Alberta. The spatial data set has been produced to meet the mapping needs of regulators: for issuing permits and licenses, and for environmental impacts assessment of industry development in the delta and Mackenzie pipeline corridor area. MVAP data acts as a baseline mapping tool to monitor change due to climate fluctuations and/or impacts from economic development. For more information on the Mackenzie Valley Air Photo project and the use of the orthotiles, please see the metadata link.
This dataset is a mosaic of SPOT 4 and SPOT 5 satellite imagery that covers the Northwest Territories and adjacent areas in the Yukon Territory, Nunavut Territory, British Columbia and Alberta. Individual SPOT images were downloaded from Geobase.ca, and full FGDC metadata for the individual images and additional information on the SPOT satellite is available from the geobase website (http://www.geobase.ca/geobase/en/data/imagery/imr/index.html) and the metadata link.
This is a shaded relief cached base map that is utilizing the most commonly used datasets that are publically available from the Government of the North West Territories and the Government of Canada. It has been rendered from 1:25,000,000 down to 1:1,000 scales. For metadata on Geo-Base WMS service data sets visit; http://www.geobase.ca/geobase/en/wms/index.html and the metadata link above.

GEO - Geological and geophysical (geoscientificInformation)The earth sciences. For example, resources describing geophysical features and processes; minerals; the composition, structure, and origin of the earths rocks; earthquakes; volcanic activity; landslides; gravity information; soils; permafrost; hydrogeology; and erosion
Canadian Digital Elevation Data can be used in the generation of three-dimensional graphics displaying terrain slope, profiles and line of sight. For more information, please see the metadata link above.
The ASTER instrument that was launched onboard NASA’s Terra spacecraft in December 1999 has an along-track stereoscopic capability using two telescopes in its near infrared spectral band to acquire data from nadir and backward views. Over 1.2 million scenes (level-1A products) acquired between March 2000 and August 2008 were used to generate the ASTER Global DEM (ASTGTM) collection.
