The OGDE Fundamental Dataset includes various GIS coverages for the entire province of Ontario, including all the features taken from the original Ontario Base Map topographic map series. The OGDE Fundamental Data is delivered in seamless files, for large areas of the province (MNR Regions and Districts). If you want seamless data for large areas, request OGDE Fundamental Data. If you want digital tiles that correspond to the original Ontario Base Map boundaries, request OBM Data instead.
Data classes are provided at one of three levels of geography. A data class could cover the entire province, be broken down by the 3 MNR regions (Northwest, Northeast, and Southcentral Ontario), or be broken down by the 26 MNR districts. The sample image shown above displays a sample layer from each level of geography (Railway at the provincial level, wetland units at the regional level, and water edge at the district level). Below is a list of all available data classes and the corresponding levels of geography.
