Landform by Ecodistrict The National Ecological Framework for Canada's "Landform by Ecodistrict” series contains tables that provide regional landform information for components within the ecodistrict framework polygon. It provides landform codes and their English and French-language descriptions as well as information about the percentage of the polygon that the component occupies. Regional landforms generally describe a region and include the various shapes of the land surface resulting from a variety of actions such as deposition or sedimentation (eskers, lacustrine basins), erosion (gullies, canyons), and earth crust movements (mountains). The regional landform classes are: plateau or tableland, hill and mountain, organic wetland, plain, scarp or valley. 2013-05-21 2019-09-12 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada infocansis@AGR.GC.CA Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyTerrestrial ecosystemsEcologyEcosystems Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://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 http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcEcostratification/fr/Cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_Canada_ISO_19131.pdf Pre-packaged FGDB filesFGDB/GDB http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/bio/aafcEcostratification/fgdb/ECODIST_LANDFORM_GDB.zip Pre-packaged GML filesGML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/bio/aafcEcostratification/gml/ECODIST_LANDFORM_GML.zip Landform by EcodistrictESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_national_ecological_framework_of_canada/MapServer/6 Landform by EcodistrictESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesdecarte/aac_cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_canada/MapServer/6 Landform by EcodistrictWMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/mapservices/aafc_national_ecological_framework_of_canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=46&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Landform by EcodistrictWMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/servicesdecarte/aac_cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=46&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
