  • Updated Yukon Basemap now available

    by Nicole Parry | Aug 01, 2018

    There is a new Yukon Basemap available for the Yukon which includes an updated road network and the latest topographic information from the CanVec layers. 

    It is available on the GeoYukon application and via the web service for other applications:

    http://mapservices.gov.yk.ca/arcgis/rest/services/Yukon_Basemap_Cache/MapServer

    This basemap will replace the previous Basemap (BaseMap_Cache), which is based on older roads information and the old National Topographic Database layers. This basemap service is considered to be legacy.

    Legacy - http://mapservices.gov.yk.ca/arcgis/rest/services/BaseMap_Cache/MapServer

  • New Forestry dataset in CSW: Personal Use Fuelwood Areas - 50k

    by Lauren Crooks | Jul 12, 2018

    This feature class identifies active areas designated for personal use woodcutting where harvesting dead or downed fuelwood can occur for purposes such as home heating. Certain areas have seasonal restrictions or additional terms and conditions. A forest resources permit is required to cut in these areas; this free permit authorizes a limit of 25m3(11 cords) of firewood. Failure to have a permit or carry it with you when cutting could result in enforcement action.

    If you have any questions about the content of this dataset, please contact forestry@gov.yk.ca

    This dataset is now on the geomatics yukon ftpsite and will be added to GeoYukon in the coming weeks

  • Corporate Spatial Warehouse: New Geology data set available

    by Lauren Crooks | Jan 11, 2018

    Yukon Geological Survey has released a new dataset in CSW: Drillhole Locations – 250k

    The layerfile is under \\cswprod\layerfiles\Geological\

  • GeoYukon: new CanVec base added

    by Nicole Parry | Dec 06, 2017

    The CanVec Base Data is now available in GeoYukon. CanVec is a new set of base data for the Yukon, which is more current and positionally accurate than the older National Topographic Data Base (NTDB) that we have been using for many years.  

    In order to aid users in the transition to the new CanVec Base Data we have made available both collections of Base Data.  The NTDB is now considered to be a legacy base data collection, however, we're aware that many data sets have been developed based on this and will require some time to transition to the new CanVec base.  The NTDB collection will eventually be removed.

    The CanVec Base Data should be used primarily, unless you have a specific requirement for the legacy NTDB data content.

    Please be aware that the cached Base Map under the Base Map heading is still using the NTDB data content.  There are plans in place in the near term to update the content of this cached map service as well.  

    If you have any questions, please contact Geomatics.Help@gov.yk.ca.

  • Corporate Spatial Warehouse: New Biophysical data set available

    by Lauren Crooks | Sep 21, 2017

    Environment Yukon has released a new dataset in CSW: Bioclimate Zones and Subzones

    The layerfile is under \\cswprod\layerfiles\Biophysical\

    Development of the Bioclimate Zones and Subzones of Yukon is the culmination of over 10 years of development through the efforts of working groups and project teams. The bioclimate zone/subzone level of the Yukon Bioclimate Ecosystem Classification (YBEC), although broad in scale, is the architecture that organizes larger (more detailed) scale classification down to the site level. For further information about the YBEC system please refer to Southern Lakes Boreal Low Subzone (BOLsl): A Field Guide to Ecosite (Environment Yukon 2017) or Yukon Ecological and Landscape Classification and Mapping Guidelines (Environment Yukon 2016).

    This dataset is now on the geomatics yukon ftpsite and will be added to GeoYukon in the next couple of days

  • Yukon government False Colour Infrared Image Services - Now Online

    by Ryan Gould | Sep 18, 2017

    Yukon government false colour infrared imagery has been published, and is now available as image services internally. This imagery is very useful in vegetation assessments. 

    Yukon government employees can use this imagery in ArcGIS by loading the layerfiles from here: \\cswprod\layerfiles\imagery\. These files include:

    • Aerial Photographs FCIR.lyr
    • High Resolution Satellites FCIR (Yukon government only).lyr, 
    • Medium Resolution Satellites FCIR (Yukon government only).lyr

    Software clients capable of consuming ArcGIS Server Image Services can access this imagery on ISERVER. Here are the services of interest:

    • Aerial_Photographs_FCIR
    • Satellites_HighResolution_FCIR
    • Satellites_MedResolution_FCIR

    These new services will be appended in the future with True Colour services when new multi-spectral imagery is acquired.

    Please email Geomatics.Help@gov.yk.ca if you have any questions about Yukon government imagery, or image services.

  • Corporate Spatial Warehouse: New Geology data set available

    by Lauren Crooks | Sep 12, 2017

    Yukon Geological Survey has released a new dataset in CSW: Assessment Report Footprints

    The layerfile is under \\cswprod\layerfiles\Geological\

    The Yukon Mining Assessment Report Footprints database contains over 7,500 reports documenting mineral exploration activity in Yukon since the 1950s. The majority fo these records are open to the public, more recent reports are confidential. Each record in this database represents a report, with the polygon geometry representing the area where work was performed. Key information about these reports has been captured, such as report number, title, author, year, claims, property name, expenditures, as well as a hyperlink to the scanned report, and it's associated data. The intended audience for this dataset is mining companies, prospectors, land use planners, First Nations, regulators, Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board, Yukon Geological Survey, and Yukon Government.

    If you have any questions about the content of this dataset, please contact geology@gov.yk.ca

    This dataset is now on the geomatics yukon ftpsite and will be added to GeoYukon in the next couple of days
