Project Goal

Provide proactive, whole-of-government leadership in the management of geospatial infrastructure to better support government priorities and meet the rapidly evolving demands of Canadians by improving access, sharing and integration of geospatial data in the federal government.

Business Problem Solved

No single source to find, combine and analyze federal Geospatial data;

Sharing and integration of “trusted” data across the federal family and Canadians was limited by conflicting technology, standards, licensing barriers;

Lack of coordination in the acquisition and use of geospatial information, services, technology, and expertise by federal departments and agencies

Technology Implemented

ArcGIS API for JavaScript
ArcGIS for Server
ArcGIS Online
