Canadian Hydrographic Service Non-Navigational (NONNA) Bathymetric Data ----- PRODUCT USE ----- The Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) NONNA Bathymetric Data products are for NON-NAVIGATIONAL USE ONLY. Under the Charts and Nautical Publications Regulations, 1995, made pursuant to the Canada Shipping Act (2001), notwithstanding exceptions, vessels navigating in Canadian waters must carry and use nautical charts and related publications issued by, or on the authority of the CHS. To obtain official navigational products released by the CHS, please see: www.charts.gc.ca For bathymetry outside of Canada’s jurisdiction, please consult the appropriate Hydrographic Office. ----- PRODUCT DESCRIPTION ----- The CHS NONNA-10 and NONNA-100 Bathymetric Data products represent a consolidation of digital bathymetric sources managed by the CHS. The « NONNA » refers to NON-NAvigational. The « 10 » or « 100 » references the approximate resolution (in metres) of the data. The CHS NONNA-10 individual product coverage is as follows: • South of 68°N the products = 0.1° latitude X 0.1° longitude (0.0001 degrees) • 68°N-80°N the products = 0.1° latitude X 0.2° longitude (0.0002 degrees) • 80°N and north the products = 0.1° latitude X 0.4° longitude (0.0004 degrees) The CHS NONNA-100 individual product coverage is as follows: • South of 68°N the products = 1° latitude X 1° longitude (0.001 degrees) • 68°N-80°N the products = 1° latitude X 2° longitude (0.002 degrees) • 80°N and north the products = 1° latitude X 4° longitude (0.004 degrees) There are various valid vertical datums associated with CHS' bathymetric sources. As a result, the vertical reference of the CHS NONNA products does not conform to a unified vertical datum. There may be data visible on land. These are elevations that were acquired during airborne bathymetric LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) surveys. Elevation values will appear as a positive number when querying the data in the CHS NONNA Data Portal. Please note that gaps in the data may be visible where modern surveys have not yet been conducted or where legacy data has not yet been digitized. Data sources included in the NONNA products may not have been subjected to the same level of quality assurance as those in official navigational products. The CHS NONNA products will be updated annually and made available by the last Friday of April of each calendar year. ----- PRODUCT FORMATS ----- CHS NONNA products adhere to the following naming convention: NONNA10_4360N07940W • NONNA10 = the product and will be either NONNA100 or NONNA10 • 4360N07940W = the south-west corner of the NONNA cell. These products are available to view, query and download via the CHS NONNA Data Portal. The following formats are available for download: • 32-bit GeoTIFF • ASCII++ (XYZ) • CSAR • BAG These formats can be opened using various GIS applications. Alternatively, the CHS NONNA products can be accessed via Web Map Service (WMS) or Web Coverage Service (WCS) links. 2020-09-25 Fisheries and Oceans Canada chsinfo@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentBathymetryDepthHydrography CHS NONNA Data Portal Guidance Document (English)PDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/NONNA_100/CHS_NONNA_Data_Portal_Guidance_Document_en.pdf CHS NONNA Bathymetric DataWCS https://data.chs-shc.ca/geoserver/wcs?request=GetCapabilities&service=WCS CHS NONNA Data PortalHTML https://data.chs-shc.ca/ CHS NONNA Frequently Asked Questions (English)PDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/NONNA_100/CHS_NONNA_FAQ_en.pdf CHS NONNA Data Portal Guidance Document (French)PDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/NONNA_100/CHS_NONNA_Data_Portal_Guidance_Document_fr.pdf CHS NONNA Frequently Asked Questions (French)PDF https://pacgis01.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/FGPPublic/NONNA_100/CHS_NONNA_FAQ_fr.pdf CHS NONNA Bathymetric DataWMS https://data.chs-shc.ca/geoserver/wms?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=caris:NONNA 10&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain CHS NONNA Bathymetric DataWMS https://data.chs-shc.ca/geoserver/wms?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&version=1.3.0&layers=caris:NONNA 10&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain
