Landform by Ecoregion

Landform by Ecoregion The National Ecological Framework for Canada's "Landform by Ecoregion” series contains tables that provide regional landform information for components within the ecoregion 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. 2023-02-23 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada infocansis@AGR.GC.CA Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyTerrestrial ecosystemsEnvironmentEcology Data Product Specification (English)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/nationalEcologicalFramework/supportdocument_documentdesupport/en/ISO_19131_National_Ecological_Framework_for_Canada_Data_Product_Specification.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/nationalEcologicalFramework/supportdocument_documentdesupport/fr/Cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_Canada_ISO_19131.pdf Pre-packaged FGDB files (Bilingual)FGDB/GDB https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/nationalEcologicalFramework/data_donnees/fgdb/er/nef_ecoreg_landform.gdb.zip Pre-packaged GeoJSON files (Bilingual)GEOJSON https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/nationalEcologicalFramework/data_donnees/geoJSON/er/nef_ecoreg_landform.geojson Landform by EcoregionESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/mapservices/aafc_national_ecological_framework_of_canada/MapServer/19 Landform by EcoregionESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesdecarte/aac_cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_canada/MapServer/19 Landform by EcoregionWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/mapservices/aafc_national_ecological_framework_of_canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=33&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Landform by EcoregionWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/servicesdecarte/aac_cadre_ecologique_national_pour_le_canada/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=33&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
