National Ecological Framework for Canada The National Ecological Framework for Canada provides a consistent, national spatial framework that allows various ecosystems to be described, monitored and reported on. It provides standard ecological units that allow different jurisdictions and disciplines to use common communication and reporting, and a common ground to report on the state of the environment and the sustainability of ecosystems in Canada. The framework was developed between 1991 and 1999 by the Ecosystems Science Directorate, Environment Canada and the Center for Land and Biological Resources Research, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Over 100 federal and provincial agencies, non-governmental organizations and private sector companies contributed to its development. 2020-12-09 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada infocansis@AGR.GC.CA Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyTerrestrial ecosystemsEcologyEcosystems Pre-packaged FGDB filesFGDB/GDB https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/bio/aafcEcostratification/fgdb/ Pre-packaged GML filesGML https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/bio/aafcEcostratification/gml/ Data Product Specification (English)PDF https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcEcostratification/en/ISO_19131_National_Ecological_Framework_for_Canada_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcEcostratification/fr/Cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_Canada_ISO_19131.pdf National Ecological Framework for CanadaHTML https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/nef/ National Ecological Framework for CanadaHTML https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/cen National Ecological Framework for Canada (English)ESRI REST https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_national_ecological_framework_of_canada/MapServer National Ecological Framework for Canada (French)ESRI REST https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesdecarte/aac_cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_canada/MapServer/ National Ecological Framework for Canada (English)WMS https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_national_ecological_framework_of_canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS National Ecological Framework for Canada (French)WMS https://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesdecarte/aac_cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS
