This early version of open maps lets you create customized maps with as many datasets as you want.

To make data easier to find, we reorganized the data catalogue. You can still find all the data that we previously included on open.canada.ca, but it might be combined into fewer dataset pages. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Open maps

Open maps provides access to the Government of Canada’s geospatial information. You can combine, visualize, and analyze geospatial data and collaborate with other Canadians.

Open maps is a work in progress and will expand and improve over the coming months. Check back for updates, and please let us know what you think.
