Canadian Geopolitical Boundaries, Level 1Entry ID: Canada_GeoBase_CanGeopolBoundL1
Abstract: This dataset is one of the GeoBase series of products. It contains current International, Economic exclusion zone and inter-provincial / territorial boundaries of Canada, plus the corresponding geopolitical areas.
The dataset contains three files: an administrative boundary file, an administrative areas file and a metadata file.
The administrative boundary file is made of non ... overlapping, topologically correct (connected) simple features, with no dangles. An administrative boundary is a line that bounds two adjacent administrative areas. In the dataset, an administrative boundary may be split into several smaller segments, due to changes in attribute information.
The administrative areas file is made of adjacent (contiguous) polygons. The polygon boundaries exactly align with the corresponding features in the administrative boundary file.
The delivery format for this dataset can be either GML ASCII or ESRI Shape file.This dataset should be used for cartographic purposes only, not for legal purposes.

Quality Classification correctness: The classification correctness of features in the
dataset has been verified manually by NRCan and forwarded to each source data
provider. Non-quantitative attribute correctness: The correctness of
non-quantitative attribute values has been verified manually by NRCan and
forwarded to each source data provider. Quantitative attribute accuracy: Not
applicable.The completeness of the dataset in terms of features and their
attributes has been verified manually.
