Exploring the new Data Catalog feature on Township Canada

We're delighted to bring you another significant enhancement to Township Canada – the introduction of the Data Catalog. This feature is born from your feedback and our commitment to continually improve your experience with our platform.

The Data Catalog is a collection of map layers and contextual data designed to enrich your research and project planning. It provides a comprehensive view of the Canadian landscape, offering valuable insights for a wide range of industries and applications. The Data Catalog currently includes four key layers:

  • Soil Landscapes of Canada: Dive into detailed soil order information, essential for agriculture, environmental studies, and land use planning.
  • Administrative boundaries: Access accurate data for all rural and municipal boundaries, a vital tool for regional planning and analysis.
  • Oil and gas fields: Visualize key oil and gas fields in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, crucial for industry-related projects.
  • Aboriginal lands: Gain insights into Aboriginal lands across Canada, supporting informed and respectful land use and planning.

With the ability to toggle these layers on and off, you can tailor your map view to focus on the specific data you need for your projects or analysis.
