Atlas of Canada 1,000,000 National Frameworks Data, Hydrology - Dams The National Frameworks Hydrology data consists of area, linear and point geospatial and attribute data for Canada's hydrology at a national scale. The product set for the hydrology theme consists of six groupings: Drainage Network Skeleton, Waterbodies, Islands, Drainage Areas, Supplemental Drainage Features Hydrometric Gauging Stations and Dams) and Cartographic. This metadata applies to the Supplemental Drainage Feature - Dams, of the hydrology theme. The Dams dataset is based on the Canadian Dam Association (CDA) Register of Dams in Canada. The register for 2003 lists 933 dams, including all those existing or under construction and meeting the criteria listed in the Supplemental Information. The tailings dams and the dams under construction listed in the register are not included in this dataset. Other reference data was used to obtain positional data. This dataset has been integrated with other National Scale Frameworks hydrology datasets and is considered a component of the Hydrology Theme. 2003-01-01 2017-05-04 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Nature and Environmentdamsdikeinland water resourceswater Download ZIP (e00) through HTTPZIP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/archive/vector/framework_cadre/hydrology/analytical/drainage_supplemental/dams/dams_pt_1m_v6-0_e00.zip Download ZIP (shp) through HTTPZIP http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/archive/vector/framework_cadre/hydrology/analytical/drainage_supplemental/dams/dams_pt_1m_v6-0_shp.zip
