Land Use 2010 The 2010 Land Use (LU) maps cover all areas of Canada south of 600N at a spatial resolution of 30 metres. The LU classes follow the protocol of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and consist of: Forest, Water, Cropland, Grassland, Settlement and Otherland. The 2010 Land Use (LU) maps were developed in response to a need for explicit, high-accuracy, high-resolution land use data to meet AAFC’s commitments in international reporting, especially for the annual National Inventory Report (NIR) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Agri-Environmental program of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the FAOSTAT component of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). 2015-03-19 2017-10-31 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Form DescriptorsLand UseAgricultureEnvironmentForestry Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcLand_Use/en/ISO_19131_Land_Use_1990__2000_2010_Data_Product_Specifications.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcLand_Use/fr/Utilisation_des_terres_en_1990_%202000_%202010_ISO19131.pdf Pre-packaged GeoTIF files (No linguistic component)GeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/lcv/aafcLand_Use/tif/2010/ Land Use 2010WMS http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/landuse_2010/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png Land Use 2010WMS http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/utilisation_des_terres_2010/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png AgriMap (English)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/agrimap Land Use 1990, 2000, 2010 (English)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/landu Land Use 1990, 2000, 2010(French)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/uterre AgriMap (French)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/agricarte Land Use 2010ESRI REST http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/landuse_2010/ImageServer Land Use 2010ESRI REST http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/utilisation_des_terres_2010/ImageServer

I have been looking at a number of datasets provided by the government of Canada and was wondering how do we know what the resolution is? Thanks

Hello Kirsten, For our geospatial datasets we provide a linked resource, a supporting document called a data product specification. Within the data product specification – for each dataset in the document there is a section called Spatial Resolution. The Spatial Resolution will give the pixel size for raster data or scale at which vector data was captured. Sometimes the scale is part of the dataset title. Finally especially with raster data, investigating the properties within a GIS will show resolution information. I hope that clarifies. Regards, Momin The Open Government team

Hi, Great product! Is there any similar data sets for Canada with percent canopy cover and predicted tree height at the same 30m resolution? I am looking for something similar to the LandFire data products for the U.S

Hi Tyler, sorry for the late response. Crown closure and heights may be found by visiting the Maps Tool page or download the grouped KNN products (http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/forests/climate-change/tools-resources/18372#mofp The Open Government team.

I can't access to Land Use 2010 (ESRI REST)

Hi Jacob, thanks for your comment. The follow response has been posted on behalf of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada: "Unfortunately we are experiencing technical difficulties with our servers that is preventing the proper access and use of AAFC web mapping services. This not only affects the web mapping service itself but also the geospatial web applications that AAFC has published. The issue is of such a nature that we can’t give a reliable estimate for restoration of service."

Jacob, the dataset owner has provided a possible alternate dataset that may be suitable: NRCAN WMS of ~2000 (http://maps.geogratis.gc.ca/wms/landcover_en) or you could download and use the tiffs (http://data.gc.ca/data/en/dataset/9e1efe92-e5a3-4f70-b313-68fb1283eadf). Hope this helps.
