Open Data Inventory
The Directive on Open Government requires all applicable Government of Canada organizations to conduct an inventory of their open data holdings. All of the inventories we received have been consolidated into the chart below. Use the thumbs up to help prioritize the release of a dataset. To access the open data used to create the table, visit Open Data Inventory.
To learn more about the Government of Canada's Open Data Inventory, review the frequently asked questions.
|Title||Description||Organization||Date Published||Date Released||Vote|
|Ocean profile data from St. Lawrence marine waters||Regional database holding ocean profile data, mostly collected with conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) instruments, but also bathythermographs (BT) and expendable bathythermographs (XBT). Data were acquired during projects/programs of DFO Quebec region and are mostly from St. Lawrence marine waters (also some Arctic and other Canadian waters). Basic information includes temperature and salinity with depth; additional sensors can measure dissolved oxygen, fluorescence, pH, and turbidity, among others. Users must be registered to query the database.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|Plankton data from St. Lawrence marine waters||Regional database holding plankton data acquired during projects/programs of DFO Quebec region and mostly from St. Lawrence marine waters (also some Arctic and other Canadian waters). Information such as phytoplankton abundance, zooplankton counts, and zooplankton biomass are available. Users must be registered to query the database.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|Long-term temperature monitoring program (LTTMP)||A data set of temperature observations from thermographs. Instruments are deployed along the coast of the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|DFO scientific buoys||Scientific buoys are moored at several locations in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence during the ice-free season. Instruments on the buoys measure atmospheric conditions (temperature, pressure, humidity, wind) and sea-surface conditions (currents, waves, temperature, fluorescence, water density, salinity).||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|Shipboard thermosalinograph program||Water temperature and salinity data recorded onboard commercial ships and a Canadian Coast Guard ship that sail in the St. Lawrence Gulf and Estuary. An instrument measuring water temperature (T) and salinity (S) has been installed since December 1999 onboard commercial ships owned and operated by Oceanex Inc. They sail year-round between Montreal and St. John's (NL), making a return trip once per week, and therefore sampling the near-surface (5 to 8 m) water temperature and salinity along this corridor. The first instrumented ship was the MV Cicero. In November 2000, installations similar to the Cicero became operational on the C.C.G.S. Martha L. Black as well as on the Nordik Express of the company Relais Nordik Inc. This latter transited once a week between Rimouski and Blanc-Sablon, stopping at many communities along the Lower North Shore. Its activities were suspended during February and March due to sea ice. In November 2001, the ship C.T.M.A. Voyageur of C.T.M.A. Group was instrumented; its track between Montreal and the Îles-de-la Madeleine increased coverage in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The thermosalinograph was installed onboard the new ship C.T.M.A. Vacancier in March 2004. In March 2006, a new thermosalinograph was installed on the ship Cabot of Oceanex, compensating for the retirement of the Cicero from their fleet, and lasting until late 2013. Lastly, the Connaigra was instrumented in January 2015.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|Toxic phytoplankton||Annual surveys of toxic phytoplankton species abundance and physical / chemical characteristics (temperature, salinity, nutrients) of seawater at 13 coastal stations along the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence .||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|Mailing address and contact details for primary offices for Fisheries and Oceans Canada||Localization and contact information of DFO offices. Find, search and locate DFO offices within Canada.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada||2016-10-28||2017-01-18|
|Small Craft Harbours Aerial Photograph Collection||Oblique aerial photographs of Small Craft Harbours facilities in Newfoundland and Labrador taken in 1983, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|Bathymetric Gridded Data Index||CHS offers 500-metre bathymetric gridded data for users interested in the topography of the seafloor. This data provides seafloor depth in metres and is accessible for download as predefined areas.||Fisheries and Oceans Canada||2014-03-11||2017-01-27|
