Predicted Bertha Armyworm Development Storymap

The Predicted Bertha Armyworm Development storymap provides weekly predicted stages of development of bertha armyworm (Mamestra configurata) for locations across Western Canada. The bertha armyworm is one of the most significant insect pests of canola in Canada. It occurs throughout Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the interior of British Columbia. Severe infestations can occur throughout most of this area but are usually limited to the parkland area of the prairies and the Peace River region of British Columbia and Alberta.

Predicted Grasshoppers Development Storymap

The Predicted Grasshopper Development storymap provides weekly predicted stages of development of the migratory grasshopper (Melanoplus sanguinipes) across Western Canada. The migratory grasshopper is one of the most destructive insect pests in western Canada. Outbreaks can lead to costly losses for grain growers. This species attacks both field and garden crops, especially cereals, tomato, celery, onion and carrot.

Predicted Wheat Midge Development Storymap

The Predicted Wheat Midge Development storymap provides weekly predicted stages of development of the wheat midge (Sitodiplosis mosellana), across Western Canada. The wheat midge is found in most areas around the world wherever wheat is grown. In recent years, significant damage to wheat crops due to wheat midge has been reported in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and southern British Columbia.

Predicted Diamondback Moth Development Storymap

The Predicted Diamondback Moth Development storymap provides an estimate of the number of potential generations of diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) expected to occur based on a) the first detection of adult moths in pheromone traps, and b) abiotic conditions. Although the diamondback moth occurs each year throughout the Canadian prairies and north central United States, the severity of the infestation varies considerably from between years and by location.

EOLakeWatch / AttentionLacsOT

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) uses satellite remote sensing to monitor lake-wide water quality indicators across Canadian inland waters. Remote sensing provides a cost-effective solution to obtain frequent lake-wide water quality observations in support of lake science and inland water quality management on an on-going basis. The datasets presented in the EOLakeWatch interactive web-tool provide long-term satellite-derived monitoring of water quality indicators, contributing to programs such as the Lake Winnipeg Basin Initiative and Great Lakes Nutrient Initiative.


Clouds is designed to be clear and concise, while offering the same degree of detail as other weather apps. Clouds features high-quality, trusted data sources, including current conditions and forecasts directly from Environment and Climate Change Canada. Clouds is also designed to be fast, giving you all the information you need right away using your current GPS location.


ContaMire presents all the data from the Contaminated Sites Inventory of the Ministère de l'Environnement et de la lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC) of Quebec and the Federal Contaminated Sites Inventory of the Government of Canada. In addition to the use of national colours in the legend, the specificities of each are identified by the abbreviation (QC) to designate the MELCC directory and (CA) to designate the federal contaminated sites directory.

Water Data API

The api provide real-time water level and flow (discharge) data collected at over 1900 hydrometric stations across Canada and historical water level and flow (discharge) data collected at over 7700 hydrometric stations across Canada.
