The map uses the Azimuthal Equidistant projection. All national boundaries are shown along with Canadian provincial and territorial boundaries and Canada's 200 nautical mile offshore Exclusive Economic Zone. National capital cities are displayed along with other cities, towns, villages and hamlets; all have been updated to 2008. Some seasonally populated places are also shown. A number of significant northern features can be found such as the minimum permanent polar sea ice extent for 1972 to 2007, tree line, undersea relief and undersea feature names, land relief, historical surveyed locations of the Magnetic North Pole from 1831 to 2007 and updated glaciers, ice fields and coastal ice shelves. The undersea relief is the most up-to-date from the 2008 International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean on top of which bathymetric tints are shown. 2012-01-01 2017-01-26 Natural Resources Canada NRCan.geogratis-geogratis.RNCan@canada.ca Government and PoliticsNature and Environmentboundarieslakesoceansriversroad networksurban communities Download Bilingual JPG through HTTPJPG http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas/eng/various_divers/IPY_ARCTIC_2012_150.jpg Download Bilingual PDF through HTTPPDF http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas/eng/various_divers/IPY_ARCTIC_2012_150.pdf
