Geospatial data and maps

Geospatial data

Geospatial data identifies and describes the geographic location of features and boundaries. Spatial data is usually stored as coordinates and topology and can be mapped. There are two types of geospatial data: vector and raster.

Our collection primarily consists of geospatial data for the Ottawa-Gatineau local area as well as Ontario and Quebec.
