Canadian Wetlands The national wetland layer contains wetland data compiled from the best available data from each region, classified by wetland type. Wetlands are mapped as polygons in geographic layers, which are integrated into a master geodatabase at the national scale.Information from each contributing dataset was classified based on the Canadian Wetland Classification System, which contains five main wetland classes (Bog, Fen, Marsh, Swamp, and Shallow Water) that represent the types of wetlands encountered in Canada. An additional category, “partially classified” was used to preserve boundary information for wetlands that could not be classified into the main categories with existing information. 2013-12-06 2019-01-30 Environment and Climate Change Canada souleymane.toure@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCanadawetlands; bog; fen; marsh; swamp; shallow waterOtherGeographic FeatureProtect Species Well-BeingInformation Systems for SpeciesNational (CA)Wetlands Canadian Wetlands / Terres humides du CanadaESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/Canadian_Wetlands_Terre_Humides_du_Canada/MapServer/0 Canadian Wetlands / Terres humides du CanadaESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/Canadian_Wetlands_Terre_Humides_du_Canada/MapServer/0 Canadian Wetlands / Terres humides du Canada (Layer)WMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/Canadian_Wetlands_Terre_Humides_du_Canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Canadian Wetlands / Terres humides du Canada (Layer)WMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/Canadian_Wetlands_Terre_Humides_du_Canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
