Says: as of April 28, 2016 in the data dictionary.

The Grade Crossing Inventory dataset has been updated as of May 2, 2017 and the Rail Safety program will be preparing updates annually. The Grade Crossings Inventory Overview Guide also includes details about the data and updates. The data elements presented in the list are from internal and public sources. They are generated and inputted as they become available to Transport Canada. - The Open Government team on behalf of Transport Canada

How often is the Grade Crossing Inventory data updated? We reported database errors to the Road Authorities in two Municipalities. The Road authorities and the Rail Companies were to get together by November 29, 2016 to update their respective information on grade crossings. The updated information does not appear in the current database.

Hi Ernie, your question has been forwarded to the data owner. We will publish a response to your comment when an answer is provided. Thank you. Momin, Open Government team.

I tried to map out the data and ran into an odd error. Please double check the data because there were a couple locations with incorrect decimal placement in the longitude and latitude. LocID: 7342 - latitude needs to have a decimal added LocID: 36647 - longitude needs to have a decimal added Thank you Cheers, Christine
