Areas of Non-Contributing Drainage within Total Gross Drainage Areas of the AAFC Watersheds Project - 2013 The "Areas of Non-Contributing Drainage within Total Gross Drainage Areas of the AAFC Watersheds Project - 2013" dataset is a geospatial data layer containing polygon features representing the areas within the “total gross drainage areas” of each gauging station of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Watersheds Project that DO NOT contribute to average runoff. A “total gross drainage area” is the maximum area that could contribute runoff for a single gauging station – the “areas of non-contributing drainage” are those parts of that “total gross drainage area” that DO NOT contribute to average runoff. For each “total gross drainage area” there can be none to several unconnected “areas of non-contributing drainage”. These polygons may overlap with those from other gauging stations’ “total gross drainage area”, as upstream land surfaces form part of multiple downstream gauging stations’ “total gross drainage areas”. 2013-04-05 2017-11-16 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentWatershedsHydrologyWaterDrainageInland watersWestern provinces Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcWatersheds2013/en/ISO_19131_AAFC_Watersheds_Project_2013_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcWatersheds2013/fr/Projet_des_bassins_hydrographiques_d_AAC_2013_Specifications_de_contenu_informationnel_ISO_19131.pdf Pre-packaged FGDB files (Bilingual)FGDB/GDB http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/hyd/aafcWatersheds2013/fgdb/HYD_AAFC_TOTAL_NON_CTRB_DRAIN_FGDB.zip Pre-packaged GML files (Bilingual)GML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/hyd/aafcWatersheds2013/gml/HYD_AAFC_TOTAL_NON_CTRB_DRAIN_GML.zip Areas of Non-Contributing Drainage within Total Gross Drainage AreasESRI REST http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_watershed_2013/MapServer/14 Areas of Non-Contributing Drainage within Total Gross Drainage AreasESRI REST http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesdecarte/aac_bassin_hydrographique_2013/MapServer/14

I am Ph.D Candidate at the university of Manitoba and am currently carrying research on flood forecasting focusing on Upper Assiniboine River Basin. I was looking at AAFC website for the non-contributing areas data however, couldn't come across any link. Is there a way to get the data? Regards, Ameer

Hello Ameer, Thank you for your interest. We have forwarded your inquiry to the data owner for their response. You may also wish to send us an email at open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca for a more direct communication channel. Thanks Thom for the Open Government Team

Ameer, You can find the Areas of Non-contributing drainage at http://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/adb2e613-f193-42e2-987e-2cc9d90d2b7a which is the page you commented on. If you look near the top of the page there is a section titled Dataset Resources, you click on the Download button beside the resource you would like to access. We have prepared the data as a fgdb (http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/hyd/aafcWatersheds2013/fgdb/HYD_AAFC_TOTAL_NON_CTRB_DRAIN_FGDB.zip) or gml (http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/hyd/aafcWatersheds2013/gml/HYD_AAFC_TOTAL_NON_CTRB_DRAIN_GML.zip). With a GIS you can convert to other dataset formats that you would like to work with. In addition the data is provided as a service which can be added to you GIS as well (http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_watershed_2013/MapServer/14). I hope this answers you question. The Open Government team
