Orthoimages of Canada 1999-2003 This inventory presents chronologically the satellite images acquired, orthorectified and published over time by Natural Resources Canada. It is composed of imagery from the Landsat7 (1999-2003) and RADARSAT-1 (2001-2002) satellites, as well as the CanImage by-product and the control points used to process the images. Landsat7 Orthorectified Imagery: The orthoimage dataset is a complete set of cloud-free (less than 10%) orthoimages covering the Canadian landmass and created with the most accurate control data available at the time of creation. RADARSAT-1 Orthorectified Imagery: The 5 RADARSAT-1 images (processed and distributed by RADARSAT International (RSI) complete the landsat 7 orthoimagery coverage. They are stored as raster data produced from SAR Standard 7 (S7) beam mode with a pixel size of 15 m. They have been produced in accordance with NAD83 (North American Datum of 1983) using the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection. RADARSAT-1 orthoimagery were produced with the 1:250 000 Canadian Digital Elevation Data (CDED) and photogrammetric control points generated from the Aerial Survey Data Base (ASDB). CanImage -Landsat7 Orthoimages of Canada,1:50 000: CanImage is a raster image containing information from Landsat7 orthoimages that have been resampled and based on the National Topographic System (NTS) at the 1:50 000 scale in the UTM projection. The product is distributed in datasets in GeoTIFF format. The resolution of this product is 15 metres. Landsat7 Imagery Control Points: the control points were used for the geometric correction of Landsat7 satellite imagery. They can also be used to correct vector data and for simultaneously displaying data from several sources prepared at different scales or resolutions. 2011-05-16 2018-05-01 Natural Resources Canada geoinfo@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyLandsatLandsat7ImageryOrthoimageRADARSAT1CanImageGeoBaseRemote sensingImagery analysisSatelliteDownloadCartographyGeographic dataGeographic information systemsGeomaticsEnvironmental sciences Landsat7 Orthorectified Imagery in LCC projection: download directoryGeoTIF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/landsat_7/geobase_ortho/geotiff/lcc/ Landsat7 Imagery Control Points: documentation directoryPDF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/landsat_7/geobase_cplic_pcilc/doc/ Landsat7 Imagery Control Points: GML and Shapefile availableSHP http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/landsat_7/geobase_cplic_pcilc/ Landsat7 Orthorectified Imagery: documentation directoryPDF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/landsat_7/geobase_ortho/doc/ RADARSAT-1 Orthorectified Imagery: documentation directoryPDF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/radarsat/geobase_radarsat/doc/ Landsat7 Orthorectified Imagery in UTM projection: download directoryGeoTIF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/landsat_7/geobase_ortho/geotiff/utm/ RADARSAT-1 Orthorectified Imagery: GeoTif datasets available (large files)GeoTIF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/radarsat/geobase_radarsat/ CanImage -Landsat7 Orthoimages of Canada: documentation directoryPDF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/canimage/doc/ CanImage -Landsat7 Orthoimages of Canada: download clipped image based on NTS 1:50 000 system.GeoTIF http://ftp.maps.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/canimage/50k/ Index of Lansat7 and RADARSAT-1 files available (drag and drop the kmz file in Google Earth to localize your region of interest)KMZ http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/landsat_7/geobase_ortho/index/landsat_ortho_radarsat.kmz Index of CanImage files available (drag and drop the kmz file in Google Earth to localize your region of interest)KMZ http://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/image/canimage/index/canimage_index_50k.kmz canimage (Groupe de couches)WMS https://maps.geogratis.gc.ca/wms/canimage_en?service=WMS&version=1.3.0&request=GetCapabilities&layers=canimage&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html canimage (Groupe de couches)WMS https://cartes.geogratis.gc.ca/wms/canimage_fr?service=WMS&version=1.3.0&request=GetCapabilities&layers=canimage&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
