Interactive Maps 

Collected information on urban forestry and related stewardship, policy and management activities is spatially integrated into interactive maps.


The maps and data available for access at this website are for research and illustrative purposes only. Any maps and associated data do not represent the full study result. The data collected is based on information from publicly available websites as of September 2017, and as a result may contain omissions. The user acknowledges all inherent limitations of the maps and data, including the fact that the maps and data are dynamic and in a constant state of maintenance, correction and revision. No liability is assumed for the accuracy of the data delineated on any map, either expressed or implied.

Each map has different layers of information. You can turn on and off the layers by clicking on the check box. You can use the check boxes to select multiple items. For example, if you would like to look at the municipalities that have inventory of ash trees, you would turn on "Ash Tree Inventory" only. Learn more about how to use the maps below.

How can I use the clustering markers on maps?

Hover the mouse over an area and click a marker to zoom in. The number on a cluster indicates how many markers it contains. As you zoom into one of the cluster locations, the number on the cluster decreases. You begin to see the individual markers on the map.

How can I find a municipality on maps?

Click the magnifying glass at the top left side of the map, enter the name of a municipality. Type the name or partial name that you want to search.

Maps contain the open data layers - Census Subdivision (CSD) and Population Centre (POPCTR) available from Statistics Canada for the Census year 2016. The Census Subdivision Boundary File, 2016 contains the boundaries of all census subdivisions (municipalities) which combined cover all of Canada. The Population Centre Boundary File, 2016 contains the population centre boundaries for which census data are disseminated. The population data used in this project are from the 2016 Census of Population.
