Atlas of Canada National Scale Data – Annual Minimum Snow and Ice (MSI) Extent Time Series
The Annual Minimum Snow and Ice (MSI) Extent of the Atlas of Canada National Scale Data, are data sets compiled containing annual data from 2000 to present. The data sets were derived from research published by the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing which classified satellite imagery over Canada and neighbouring regions for the continued presence or absence of snow and ice from April 1 to September 20 each year. The Atlas of Canada MSI products consist of a vector dataset and a raster time-series animation application.
The vector dataset has been generalized to display at the scale of 1:1,000,000.
TIME-SERIES ANIMATION APPLICATION
The time-series animation application has not been generalized from its original scale (250 m pixels).
The application is disseminated through the Data Cube Platform, implemented by the Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation, Natural Resources Canada using geospatial big data management techniques. These technologies enable the rapid and efficient visualization of high-resolution geospatial data and allow for the rapid generation of dynamically derived products. The time-series is also available as a Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Coverage Service (WCS).
