The GeoBase Portal, operated by Natural Resources Canada, is a federal, provincial and territorial government initiative that is overseen by the Canadian Council on Geomatics (CCOG). It will ensure the provision of, and access to, a common, up-to-date and maintained base of quality geospatial data for all of Canada. Through the GeoBase portal, users with an interest in the field of geomatics have access to quality geospatial information at no cost and with unrestricted use.

Version 1 of the GeoBase portal offers access to the following sets of data:

  • Administrative Boundaries
  • Canadian Digital Elevation Data (CDED)
  • Canadian Geodetic Network
  • Geographical Names of Canada (toponymy)
  • Landsat-7 Orthoimages
  • National Road Network (NRN)
