Hello Mr Peterson; The Atlas of Canada “Wall Map - International” reference series are cartographic products designed for large format printing. As such, while originally based on geomatics datasets products, the final product are created using graphic software for the purpose of high quality printing. This bilingual map at a scale of 1:9 000 000 shows the geography of the northern circumpolar region, north of approximately 55 degrees latitude. The map uses the azimuthal equidistant projection. All international boundaries, as well as the Canadian provincial and territorial boundaries and Canada's 200 nautical mile offshore exclusive economic zone are displayed on the map. National capital cities, other cities, towns, villages and hamlets along with some seasonally populated places are also shown. The map identifies a number of significant northern features, including the median sea ice extent from September 1981 to 2010, the tree line, undersea relief, land relief, the Magnetic North Pole, glaciers, ice fields and coastal ice shelves. Many of the physiographic and hydrographic features are also labelled. What’s New In Natural Resources Canada’s North Circumpolar Region Map?

Beautiful map - It would be of value of the data - features and coverages - that make up this excellent resource were made available so that it could be linked with other data - or even a Web Map Service.

Hi perry - thank you for your comment. I have forwarded your feedback to the data owner for their review. Regards, Momin, the Open Government team.
