Corporate Spatial Warehouse - New Canvec base data available

August 30, 2017

The Yukon Government is transitioning CSW Base data from  NTDB data to Canvec data, which is more positionally accurate and is updated regularly. The NTDB data is now a legacy product that will be retained in CSW as many Departmental data sets are tied to this base. The new Canvec data sets are under the categories Base Data, Elevation, and Transportation as indicated below. These data sets will be added to GeoYukon in the next few weeks. the data exports are currently available on ftp://ftp.geomaticsyukon.ca/geoyukon and the metadata will be published at http:/geoweb.gov.yk.ca/geoportal/catalog/search/search.page
