Digital elevation model of the Canadian Landmass - Canada3D Canada3D is a digital elevation model (DEM) produced by the Canadian Forestry Service, Ontario region. The DEM consists of an ordered array of ground elevations providing coverage of the Canadian landmass. It has been derived from the cells of the Canadian Digital Elevation Data (CDED) at the 1:250 000 scale. Canada3D is available in two levels of detail: grids regularly spaced at 30 or 300 arcseconds. Canada3D 30 and 300 are recorded separately in ASCII format. The elevation values are expressed in metres with respect to mean sea level (MSL), in accordance with the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83). 2002-01-01 2017-03-29 Natural Resources Canada geoinfo@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyDEMElevationElevation modelGeographic information systemsEarth sciencesGeomaticsTopography DEM Canada3D (30 arcseconds)ASCII Grid http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/elevation/canada3d/can3d30.zip DEM Canada3D (300 arcseconds)ASCII Grid http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/elevation/canada3d/can3d300.zip Canada3D Product Standard (English)PDF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/elevation/canada3d/doc/norme_canada3d_en.pdf Canada3D Product Standard (French)PDF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/elevation/canada3d/doc/norme_canada3d_fr.pdf

How do I download? Why was GeoBase decommissioned? It was straight forward and the user experience was much better.

Hello, GeoBase web site was owned by The Canadian Council on Geomatics (CCOG). Natural Resource Canada (NRCAN) was in charge to maintain the site. Two years ago, CCOG decided to transfer all these collections to NRCAN web site and to close the site. We moved these collections to our main web site GeoGratis [ https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/earth-sciences/geography/topographic-information/free-data-geogratis/11042 ] where we stored more than 200 geospatial collections. They are several ways to access these collections: 1. With the searching tools [ http://geogratis.gc.ca/geogratis/en/search ] (use Geobase as a keyword) 2. GeoGratis API search [ http://geogratis.gc.ca/api/en/nrcan-rncan/ess-sst/$categories?scheme=urn:iso:series ] (use Geobase as a keyword) 3. Direct access to the FTP site [ https://www.nrcan.gc.ca/earth-sciences/geography/topographic-information/free-data-geogratis/download-directory-documentation/17215 ] Please note in an ongoing effort to make geospatial information more accessible to the public all our collections are presently moving to Open Maps [ http://open.canada.ca/en/open-maps ] portal. Digital elevation model of the Canadian Landmass - Canada3D http://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/042f4628-94b2-40ac-9bc1-ca3ac2a27d82 Open Maps provide access to the Government of Canada’s geospatial information. Several departments are now moving their collections to this web site. Open Maps is a work in progress and will expand and improve over the coming months. If you need help, do not hesitate to contact us directly: geoinfo@canada.ca Regards, Momin The Open Government team on behalf of NRCan
