Geographic Names of Canada (Natural Resouces Canada)

Looking for the geographic coordinates of that special place, town, city, or natural feature? No need to flip through pages of out-dated gazetteers. You can now find all the registered name places and geographic coordinates for almost anywhere in Canada, online!

The Atlas of Canada

The Atlas of Canada is a neat web mapping service. There are a variety of themes to choose from, including:

Canadian Hydrographic Service

From their web site, you will be able to order nautical charts (paper, vector and raster formats), publications (tide tables, etc.), find information on where and how to buy paper charts, and order bathymetric data. This is a good starting point (and maybe your ending point) for ordering on-line digital charts and bathymetric data for coastal areas in BC. Have your credit card ready!

National Topographic Data Base (Geomatics Canada )

The National Topographic Data Base (NTDB) is a digital data base developed by Geomatics Canada.
