How can I find the "data" year for a given 1:250 000 scale map?
Thanks.

How do I find topographical maps to download for a specific region?

Hi Danny,
Thank you for your comment, have you tried to click the PDF ACCESS link - all the topographical maps are divided there by region - ATL, QC, etc. I tried it from here and it worked just fine.
Hope that helps,

Hello, I'll be needing the electrical grid network of Saskatchewan for research purpose. Is there any way to link those contents to the topographic map?

Hi Bikash,
Thank you for your comment, I have passed your question on to the dataset holder and we will get back to you as soon as possible on this.

Hi Bikash,
I received a response to your request, here it is:
To have the Electrical grid network of Saskatchewan, customers must contact SaskPower
Unfortunately Natural Resource Canada does not have any recent electric network available. Users must contact Provinces.
I hope this helps,

How do I search for 1:50,000 scale topographic maps without getting 85,000 results? Even by indicating a name of a map sheet, I get search results including other parts of Canada not related to the search terms.

How can I rate this site when I try to access the NTS map index and only get the html page coding. Fix!

Hi Anon,
Thanks for highlighting this. We forwarded your comment to Natural Resources Canada so they can fix the problem. We will let you know when the problem is solved.

Hi Anon,

Here is the response of Natural Resources:

Hi Anon, there is no error, the first two links are Web Services (WMS) and it should look like that. You will need a Geographic Information System (GIS) software for that and also for viewing the shape files index (last link).
The NTS indexes in PDF and TIF formats are fine. The KML files Index is for use in Google Earth.
We will also have a HTML index (not yet available) on the Open Government Portal.

Find, visualize and download files via the Index of Geospatial Products HTML http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/vector/index/html/geospatial_product_index_en.html

Hope this help,
