Lakes and rivers in Canada - CanVec Series - Hydrographic features The hydrographic features of the CanVec series include watercourses, water linear flow segments, hydrographic obstacles (falls, rapids, etc.), waterbodies (lakes, watercourses, etc.), permanent snow and ice features, water wells and springs. The Hydrographic features theme provides quality vector geospatial data (current, accurate, and consistent) of Canadian hydrographic phenomena. It aims to offer a geometric description and a set of basic attributes on hydrographic features that comply with international geomatics standards, seamlessly across Canada. The CanVec multiscale series is available as prepackaged downloadable files and by user-defined extent via a Geospatial data extraction tool. 2015-05-18 2017-12-12 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.geoinfo.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCanadaEarth SciencesHydrographyNTDBCanVec1 000 0005 000 00015 000 0001;000;0005;000;0001M5M15M50K50 00050;000250K250 000250;000WatercoursesWatersheds Customized files (selectable extent, clipping and format) Geospatial-Data Extraction Tool (English interface)HTML http://maps.canada.ca/czs/index-en.html Customized files (selectable extent, clipping and format) Geospatial-Data Extraction Tool (French interface)HTML http://maps.canada.ca/czs/index-fr.html Prepackaged FGDB files (download directory)FGDB/GDB http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/vector/canvec/fgdb/Hydro/ Prepackaged Shapefiles (download directory)SHP http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/vector/canvec/shp/Hydro/ Index of available files (drag and drop the kmz file in Google Earth to localize your region of interest)KMZ http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/vector/canvec/index/canvec_hydro.kmz Drop-down navigation menu to CanVec Series documentation and online data cataloguesHTML http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/vector/canvec/doc/info.html Lakes and rivers in Canada - CanVec SeriesWMS http://maps.geogratis.gc.ca/wms/canvec_en?request=getcapabilities&service=wms&layers=hydro&version=1.3.0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Lakes and rivers in Canada - CanVec SeriesWMS http://cartes.geogratis.gc.ca/wms/canvec_fr?request=getcapabilities&service=wms&layers=hydro&version=1.3.0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
